WTO National Workshop on the WTO and Regional Trade Agreements - Atelier national de l'OMC sur l'OMC et les accords commerciaux régionaux - Taller nacional de la OMC sobre la OMC y los acuerdos comerciales regionales

Following graduation from LDC status in 2011, Maldives has been coping with competitive global market place. In order to benefit from global trade, Maldives is in the process of entering into Free Trade Agreements with a few regional trading partners. The Government has expressed a keen interest to understand the issues involved with RTAs. It is also seeking to better understand the WTO's basic provisions and its key Agreements with a view to improving the understanding of all stakeholders in Maldives to effectively deal with multilateral trade rules and their possible applications in RTAs to be negotiated by the Government. Accordingly, the Workshop aims to improve the knowledge and understanding of the officials of Maldives on WTO rules on RTAs (goods, services) as well as trends and characteristics in RTAs. It also intends to enhance the knowledge of the participants of the WTO's key Agreements and current developments relevant for a small economy like Maldives
