Content of the course
The Secretariat of the World Trade Organization is organizing a two-week
Specialized Course on the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade to be
held at WTO headquarters, in Geneva, from 27 October to 7 November 2008.
Twenty-five officials from developing countries and economies in transition
that are Members (or Governments in accession process) have been selected to
participate in the Course.
The purpose of this Specialized Course is to give officials working on TBT
issues in capitals an opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the TBT
Agreement and improve their understanding of TBT-related trade issues. The
Course will comprise a series of sessions and practical exercises related to
the provisions of the Agreement and their implementation. The Course will
also provide opportunity for participants to attend and observe the 5-6
November regular meeting of the TBT Committee.
The course will be participatory in nature and will encourage active
engagement: participants will be called upon to share their national
experiences with respect to selected topics. During the course participants
will be tutored by a team of WTO Secretariat staff. Delegates to the TBT
Committee and representatives from international bodies will be invited to
participate in the discussions. Technical visits will also be organized.
