  Developed country Summary
Countries coloured darker shades of green exhibit very high human development and are generally reckoned as developed countries.
Countries with an HDI of 0.8 or more — largely corresponding to what the conventional definition of being a "developed" country is — exhibit high development, and those with an HDI between 0.5 and 0.8 (including many of the former Soviet and Eastern Bloc states) exhibit moderate development.
Slovenia is often considered a developed country, being classified as a high-income economy and net donor by the World Bank, and having a HDI higher than 0.9, ranked 26th in the world.

Countries considered likely to join the ranks of developed nations in the future must pass further major hurdles (e.g., debt, diversification, democratisation, crackdown on crime and corruption, lowering unemployment, education reform, development of a middle class) to attain full-fledged developed status; however, they have sufficient wealth to currently enjoy some benefits of "developed" status.
Turkey and South Africa are considered developed by a limited number of sources; however their GDP per capita (both have lower middle-income economies) and HDI ranking, clearly places them among the developing countries.

 The Hindu : Business : A fresh trade insecurity at WTO
The Enabling Clause allowed developed countries to formulate individual tariff preference schemes to benefit developing countries — and until this latest AB ruling — required such schemes to be generalised, non-discriminatory and non-reciprocal (meaning no reciprocal conditions of market access or other benefits to the preference-giving country).
The AB ruling, as Brazil said, has enabled developed countries to use the WTO as an instrument of their foreign policy, and extend trade concessions or benefits to developing countries on the basis of foreign (or other non-trade policy goals) of the developed country.
For, developing countries compete with each other in the markets of the GSP preference giving countries, and any discriminatory treatment means taking away benefits of one developing country and giving it to another.

So if developed countries are able to frame rules which are in their favour, we will find, as we are finding in regards to goods, that in future when we want to enter the services arena, we have difficulties of our own.
For developing countries, on the other hand, if you look at our experience in manufacturing, the general philosophy was that a product would be developed in a developed country and over time, the manufacturing facility would be transferred to the developing country.
While it would die out in the developed countries, it would come over to our countries and we would be the ones to supply the manufactures for the next few years.

 AGRICULTURE: DEVELOPING COUNTRIES CRITICISE GROSER DRAFT FOR DEVELOPED-COUNTRY BIAS
Developing countries in particular criticised Annex A for what they saw as significant imbalances in the level of specificity on issues important to developed countries, on the one hand, and those crucial to developing country Members, on the other.
With respect to 'sensitive' products in developing countries, the Groser text left most details open, stating the need for more clarity on "what contribution is likely to be forthcoming from developing countries [with respect to their 'sensitive' products]".
Brazil, representing the G-20 group of major developing counties, argued that the text on sensitive products was biased in favour of developed countries because flexibilities for developed countries to protect their sensitive products are clearly articulated in the text, while similar protections for developing countries were to be negotiated at a later date.

 Developing-Country Access to Developed-Country Markets under Selected Ecolabelling Programmes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The WTO Doha Development Agenda states that “international trade can play a major role in the promotion of economic development and the alleviation of poverty.” Enhanced market access and financed technical assistance for developing countries are important elements of this goal.
Several developing country participants expressed concerns that both voluntary and regulatory environmental labelling and certification programmes may not be taking local market conditions and capacities into account, which they perceived as a barrier to developed country markets.
The ecolabelling programmes selected for this study were chosen on the basis of their application to products of export interest to developing countries, as well as the extent of their international acceptance by producers and consumers.

Even in developing countries there are cases where one moves at a rapid pace to get Developed country recognition (China) and the other which moves at a snail pace to get the same (India).
Often the label of underdeveloped country is applied to countries which are poor, defining poor country as country which doesn't have enough economical resources to sustain itselves.
I think not, because a country may be very rich but it could have a really corrupt government which spends irrationally the money of the taxpayers, or a political class accustomed to steal fortunes to the state.
