  • WTO Thematic Course on Practical Guide for Trade Policy Analysis - Switzerland - English - Level 3 - Specialist
    Description
    The Thematic Course on Practical Guide for Trade Policy Analysis, a Level 3 training activity implemented within the WTO Progressive Learning Strategy (PLS), represents the highest level of learning among WTO training activities. The course is targeted at government officials who are directly involved in the formulation and conduct of trade policy, and/or researchers and academics who are involved in trade and trade policy related study, research and teaching. The ability to conduct high quality analyses of trade data is essential for decision making both in the government and in the private sector. Multilateral, regional and bilateral trade negotiations, as well as the formulation and implementation of appropriate policies at a national level, require an extensive analysis of economic data and an assessment of the impact of trade policy decisions. The purpose of this advanced level, specialized course is for the participants to learn how to select the appropriate approach to answer their trade policy research question, how to collect the data and implement the analysis. The course is based on the UNCTAD/WTO Practical Guide to Trade Policy Analysis which can be accessed at: http://www.wto.org/english/res_e/publications_e/practical_guide12_e.htm.
