Trinidad and Tobago is hosting the WTO Regional Trade Policy Course for Caribbean WTO members and observers. The course, running from 17 July to 8 September, is being carried out in partnership with the University of West Indies (UWI), St Augustine Campus. In a pre-recorded video message, WTO Deputy Director-General Xiangchen Zhang told participants at the course’s opening that the training programme was an opportunity for them to reflect on the workings of the international trading system. “This regional course will place a specific focus on the regional trade policy context and its linkages with the WTO agreements. It will also allow you to discuss how the multilateral trading system can be strengthened, reformed and modernised. I think this is a very important reflection — which is particularly in tune with the global debate on the relevance of the global trading system,” DDG Zhang said. The eight-week capacity building programme is the second Regional Trade Policy Course held in the Caribbean in collaboration with the University of West Indies (UWI), St Augustine Campus, building on the first collaboration in 2019.
