Renato Ruggiero's speeches,
The purpose of
this aid is to help beneficiary countries to overcome the difficulties they face in
implementing the WTO Agreements and to promote their integration into world trade.
The funds provided will make it possible to finance the necessary legal expertise for
establishing national legislation in the specific WTO areas (in particular customs
evaluation, technical barriers to trade and sanitary and phytosanitary measures) as well
as a large number of training activities.
This new contribution comes in
addition to the annual grant of CHF 300,000 which Switzerland has made since 1991 for the
organization of training courses for Central and Eastern European and Central Asian
countries that are candidates for accession to the WTO.
