In the context of UNCTAD´s assistance to Least Developed Countries, the Bangladeshi authorities have requested the local office of UNDP to organize various workshops to train Bangladeshi diplomats and trade and legal officials.
The first event took place in July. UNCTAD will focus this second workshop on arbitration and mediation skills required to negotiate more development-friendly trade agreements.
The workshop will focus on the following issues:
- Introduction to international trade-related negotiations
- Negotiating requirements and skills
- Participation of Bangladesh in the on-going selected trade-related negotiations
- Settlement of disputes, including a simulation exercise
Along with the other activities scheduled within this assistance programme, this workshop will contribute to the capacity of Bangladesh to negotiate international trade agreements.
