Key Issues

The Paragraph 166 (P166) programme addresses the challenges that developing countries and LDCs face in an increasingly globalized economy through courses on key issues on the international economic agenda.

The 38th Regional course will be hosted by the Singapore Cooperation Programme and its aim is as follows:

       • To enhance understanding of the relationship between trade, investment, finance, technology and development, and their links to country development strategies.

       • To 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 United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP). Experts from Singapore will also share their country's experience in promoting and managing trade, investment, finance and development.

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 in Asia and the Pacific.
