The UWI is Tradelab’s newest member!

We are pleased to announce that the University of the West Indies (UWI) is Tradelab’s newest member!

In a recent release in the Tradelab newsletter, it was noted that “after a thorough review by the TradeLab Executive Committee and General Assembly, TradeLab has admitted UWI into its network”.

Last semester, 9 students in UWI’s pilot clinic completed 3 confidential projects for different government and IGO beneficiaries, under the leadership of Dr. Jan Yves Remy, Deputy Director of the SRC, and Dr. Ronnie Yearwood, Lecturer in Law, Faculty of Law, The UWI Cave Hill. These projects included:

  • Analysing reform proposals put forth by World Trade Organization (WTO) Members to enhance the organization’s efficiency and functioning;
  • Formulating WTO compliant domestic support options for local manufacturers; and
  • Identifying policy priorities and strategies for the beneficiary to prepare for plurilateral e-commerce negotiations.

Additionally, Dr. Remy has recently been elected to Tradelab’s Executive committee.
