These courses are organized by the ITTC in cooperation with experts from WTO divisions and mainly consist of a presentation on the state-of-play of the negotiations, the historical background of the multilateral trading system (MTS), the WTO basic principles, the functioning of the Organization, as well as the different ways to access WTO-relevant information. The courses, provided with interpretation, are held at WTO headquarters in Geneva.
In terms of objectives to be reached, it is expected that at the end of the introduction day the participants will have:
- acquired a general understanding of the WTO, its functioning and fundamental principles;
- learned how to access WTO-relevant resources through information technology; and,
- updated their knowledge on WTO current activities (including negotiations).
