The International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce and the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (under the EU-funded Trade Related Project), is organizing a workshop on Trade Remedies that will take place on Thursday, 05 December 2019. This will enable the business community to become fully aware of the implications of trade remedies and how they can make use of them. It will also provide the participants with knowledge on the detailed information that would have to be provided in lodging an application seeking for investigation.
ITC will hold, on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 December 2019 in the mornings two (2) meetings for around 80 exporters and border agencies on the export procedures of selected products, incl. organic cinnamon, cinnamon oil and virgin coconut oil, and organic fruits and vegetables.
The objective of the 1.5 day workshop is to support the Sri Lankan Trade Negotiation team, by providing examples of best practices and experiences in trade negotiation. The training will build on the FTA Trade Negotiations Toolkit produced by ITC by Q4 2019. It provide a comprehensive checklist of points for negotiators (from a developing country perspective), that provides a structured framework / process which can then be used to guide negotiators and government officials, and use it as a guide in the negotiations process.
In September 2019, ITC will organize a two-hour evening event on “The Future of Trade Multilateralism” which will be open to all stakeholders, with former Deputy Director-General of the WTO David Shark as the key note speaker.
