Trade Negotiations and Commercial Diplomacy

Making trade and trade negotiations work for developing countries and countries with economies in transition

The Trade Negotiations and Commercial Diplomacy Branch (TNCDB) contributes to maximizing the trade and development prospects of developing countries and economies in transition, assisting them in their beneficial integration into the globalizing and liberalizing world economy and the international trading system, and effectively implementing the Millennium Declaration commitment "to an open, equitable, rule-based, predictable, and non-discriminatory multilateral trading and financial system".

The work of the Trade Negotiations and Commercial Diplomacy Branch aims to strengthen human, institutional and policy-making capacities by formulating and implementing national trade policy frameworks conducive to economic, human and social development and poverty alleviation, as well as in participating effectively in multilateral, regional and subregional trade negotiations.
