UNCTAD/ESCWA Capacity Building Workshop on Non-Tariff Measures: Economic assessment and policy options for development
07 - 08 November 2018
Economic and Social Commission for West Asia (ESCWA)
Beirut, Lebanon

Key Issues

​Non Trade Measures (NTMs) have become a key factor influencing international trade, despite its implications on the economic development, particularly for countries pursuing a developmental strategy in order to integrate themselves into the global markets. The event will cover the UNCTAD book “Non-Tariff Measures: economic assessment and policy options for development” focusing primarily on the implications of NTMs over market access and economic integration.  It will present several policy options for governments to minimize the negative effects due to NTMs. Voluntary Sustainability Standards will also be covered in the presentations.

ESCWA will launch the second edition of Assessing Arab Economic Integration Report: Trade in Services as a Driver of Growth and Development.  This report makes the case that limiting trade agreements to goods will not generate significant gains to address Arab Economic and Social Challenges.
