http://www.wto.org/ 18.07.11 The Aid for Trade initiative supports developing countries' efforts to increase their participation in the global economy.

This needs to be matched by close cooperation at the international and regional level among intergovernmental organisations with core responsibilities in these areas and their member governments.

Trade vs Aid
There are various responses to the wave of people traveling through the Balkans to the European Union. Some residents along the transit route are eager to volunteer their time or money to help. Others see it is a business opportunity. At a camp in the northern Serbian town of Kanjiza, near the border with Hungary, both approaches are evident.

A group from the 18th batch of Samriddhi's flagship program "Arthalaya" (School of Economics and Entrepreneurship) came up with this song for a debate assignment on 'trade vs. aid'. The groups were asked to prepare a five minutes creative presentation before the actual debate started. These guys prepared this wonderful song overnight and secured first place against three other competing groups. The melody is taken from a popular Nepali folk song : Resham firiri The program was held from March 27 to April 1, 2014. Samriddhi, The Prosperity Foundation has been organising Arthalaya since 2009.
