WTO National Seminar on Agriculture - Séminaire national de l'OMC sur l'agriculture - Seminario Nacional de la OMC sobre Agricultura
Description

The WTO national seminar on agriculture, organized by the Agriculture and Commodities Division (AGCD) and the Institute for Training and Technical Cooperation (ITTC), offers specialized training to governmental officials involved in agricultural negotiations for the accession of the Bahamas.

The general aim of the seminar is to enable participants to improve their understanding of the provisions of the Agreement on Agriculture, more specifically in the area of tariff quotas and farm subsidies, so as to enable their effective participation in the accession negotiations on agricultural matters. The seminar will also prepare the participating officials to understand the implementation challenges of the various agriculture obligations that they would be subject to upon the conclusion of the membership negotiations. Some important decisions adopted in the agriculture negotiations including on TRQ administration will also be discussed. The implementation aspects will be discussed in light of the extensive notification obligations applicable to agriculture as well as by discussing some relevant disputes and their implications.  The participants will also be exposed to the role and working of the    Committee on Agriculture.
