The World Trade Organization launched on 10 August 2020 its first online Regional Trade Policy Course (e-RTPC) for Caribbean Members and Observers. The e-RTPC has been organized by the Regional Trade Policy Course Unit of the Institute for Training and Technical Cooperation (ITTC) of the WTO. Twenty government officials from ten Caribbean Members of the WTO are attending the e-RTPC that will end 13 November 2020.
The objectives of the e-RTPC are to: 1) deepen understanding of the WTO Agreements and the functioning of the WTO, its rules and procedures; 2) strengthen capacity to access WTO information resources and the ability to find relevant provisions in the WTO legal texts; and 3) enhance understanding of relevant trade policy issues in their regional context.
As a contribution to the third objective a panel of distinguished trade policy experts from the Caribbean region will share in a roundtable discussion their views on current trade policy issues in the Caribbean region. The roundtable discussion will be moderated and include a questions and answers session.
The event is scheduled on Friday 9 October from 15:00 to 17:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST) / 09:00 to 11:00 Eastern Standard Time (EST).
