The second Technical Meeting on Euromed Trade and Investment Facilitation Mechanism (TIFM) will take place on the 27-28 November 2014, in the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) in Barcelona. The Trade and Investment Facilitation Mechanism is an EC funded multi-year project, being implemented by ITC in collaboration with trade support institutions in 9 countries, to improve transparency of trade and market access conditions and intra-regional trade in the Euro Mediterranean region. The Focal Points from participating countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, State of Palestine, Tunisia and Turkey) together with delegates from the EC and UfM and the ITC project team will discuss the progress of the project, including the status of the data collection and processing, progress on the development of the online Euromed TIFM platform and Trade Information Helpdesk, and the workflow behind the Euromed TIFM Helpdesk. In-depth technical training will be provided on collection and processing of data on non-tariff market access regulations.
