Key Issues

The course will focus on the links between trade, investment, finance and development, including in the context of international trade negotiations.

Its aim is as follows:

  • Enhance understanding of the relationship between these areas and their links to country development strategies.

  • Provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for the design and implementation of trade and development policies, as well as for trade negotiations, corresponding to the needs and interests of their countries.

The course syllabus will draw on the perspective of UNCTAD, its analytical work and lessons learned from its technical cooperation activities and will be enriched by the competence and expertise of representatives of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, and of national experts in these areas of work.

The course is aimed primarily at mid-level government officials in ministries and institutions who are involved in the formulation and implementation of national trade and development policies, and who deal with issues relating to trade, investment and finance, and development. As appropriate, and depending on the availability of space, other applicants, such as university academics, may be considered.
