WTO holds trade course for LDC officials
The WTO Secretariat will hold, on 16 October to 3 November 2000 in Geneva, its Third Short Trade Policy Course for Least-Developed Countries with participants from 42 LDCs. The course aims to assist trade officials broaden their knowledge of the WTO, and identify areas of possible interest and concern for their countries.
Mr. Moore also noted that, for the first time, the WTO Secretariat has invited three regional Secretariats from regions with concentrations of LDCs to participate in the course. These are the United Nations Commission for Africa (UNECA), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the Forum Secretariat (FORSEC). I am sure the participants will appreciate the knowledge and insights that these organizations can bring to the course, he said.
