technical assistance and training
WTO TA Annual Report 2022
Technical Assistance (TA) is a core function of the WTO aiming to enhance human and institutional trade capacities in developing and least-developed Members and observers.
In 2022, TA saw a resumption of in-person activities after the lifting of the sanitary and travel restrictions. WTO TA moved towards blended TA activities, which include online, in-person, and virtual components to maximize impact and efficiency, to adapt and stay relevant in a world that is changing quickly.
This report highlights the achievements, efforts and challenges of TA during the year, mindful that the efforts and impact of technical assistance are best assessed over the long term and with a bird's eye view.
