  • Abstract Developed countries usually help developing countries to ease into global trade through, infrastructure improving and other trade-related assistance. In recent years, WTO (World Trade Organization) regularly hold a conference ," Global Review of Aid for Trade", to track the results of aid for trade. This conference not only reviews the past achievements of trade aid from member countries, but also hears the opinions from the donors and recipients, in order to develop better assistance programs that aid for trade can have greatest effect. The main issue of the most recent conference(Fourth Global Review of Aid for Trade) is “Connecting to Value Chains”. Its purpose is to think about how the trade assistance can help the recipient countries to enter the global value chain, and create their own industrial value. Meanwhile the meeting also stressed the importance of public-private sector cooperation, which states that the aid for trade will achieve sustainable development goals through cooperation between the two departments. As a result, this article use the three countries and two firms model to discuss how national trade aid decisions affect the decisions of firms, and discuss how changes in the cost variables influence decision-making behavior of the country. The conclusions are, first, when the related production costs of developed country rise, it tends to became a donor nation of trade aid. Second, when a developing country rise, a developed country tends not to do aid for trade.
