These events address different components of our joint activities involving teaching and research, all of which aim to increase the capacity of Members to participate effectively in the WTO.
Elements for discussion include research being conducted at the WTO and by academic institutions from the regions, training on trade-related research, curriculum development, information exchanges, evaluation of joint teaching activities aimed at government officials, and possible joint research.
These meetings are also used to update the academic partners on progress in the WTO negotiations and work programme, and equally serve to prepare for RTPCs organized by the Secretariat in the regions.
The workshops last three days and each one involves up to 30 academics from the region.
Details of the courses to be held this year can be found here.
