U.S. Government provides funding for WTO information technology project in developing countries
The United States Department of State has made a grant of US$90,000 in support of the WTO information technology initiative for least-developed and developing countries. This initiative aims, through the use of information technologies, to support the integration of some 50 least-developed and developing countries into the multilateral trading system.
This U.S. contribution comes in addition to grants already provided for the same project by the governments of Norway, Hong-Kong and the Netherlands.
