Conducive policy and regulatory environment: Trade negotiations and policy reform
The ITC’s Supporting Trade Negotiations and Policy Reform Programme seeks to strengthen the capacity of public and private sector stakeholders to contribute to trade negotiations and policy formulation on emerging matters relating to facilitating green trade, e-commerce, inclusive trade, sustainable and resilient value chains, strengthened multilateral and regional integration, and other trade policy issues identified as relevant for a conducive business environment.
Through this project, ITC will, in relation to the topics mentioned above, seek to (a) generate awareness/understanding of stakeholders through information-sharing/awareness-raising engagements; (b) capacitate stakeholders to engage in informed and inclusive trade and investment policy and regulatory reforms; and (c) facilitate domestic trade policy reforms through technical studies/analyses and related advisory support to facilitate implementation of reforms, including undertaking legislative/regulatory reforms.
In designing and implementing such support, ITC builds upon the multilateral and regional/bilateral trading frameworks in place to ensure there is a coherent and coordinated approach to domestic trade and investment policy reforms and that measures implemented are aligned with trade commitments undertaken and/or international best practices in this regard.
The activities implemented under this project will be based on requests received from countries/institutions.
