Policy Requirements

Developing countries are confronted by many obstacles to establishing and expanding local processing facilities for indigenous natural resources, whether for the domestic market or for export. The term ‘natural resources’ covers a vast heterogeneous collection of commodities; therefore all policy proposals must necessarily apply more or less according to the type of commodity, which particular constraints it faces, in which country it is produced, as well as a host of determining factors like the political ability of governments, the social and economic situation and so on. But in all cases LDCs generally need to improve the necessary infrastructure, develop local markets (often largely rural) and develop co-operative measures by joint action, specifically in relation to expanding processing local raw materials.
