Regional Trade Capacity Building Programme: Caucasus and Western CIS

9 – 16 April 2014 | Warsaw, Poland

Programme FlyerFrom 9 – 16 April, the UNIDO Institute conducted a training programme on “Regional Trade-Capacity Building for the Caucasus and Western CIS” in Warsaw, Poland. The one-week training gathered 24 participants from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. They deliberated how to raise the competitiveness of the region’s economies, enterprises and products and services and on how to improve cross-border cooperation and integration into the multilateral trading system.

Based on a solid analysis of trade challenges and opportunities, the programme was designed for encouraging systemic trade development along value chains and sought to promote growth through capacity-building to ensure informed and timely trade-related policymaking and to strengthen institutions/infrastructures that are part of the enabling environment for effective trade participation.

Faculty for the programme included – inter alia – high-level representatives from UNIDO, the Network on Metrology, Accreditation and Standardization for Developing Countries (DCMAS) as well as from the private sector. It has been funded by the Polish Ministry of Economy.
