Building Trade and Investment Capacity in Myanmar: Intensive Training Programme on Trade Policy and Analysis

Date: 
26 May 2014 to 30 May 2014
Location: 
Yangon, Myanmar

ESCAP/ARTNeT, in partnership with several institutions including RIS India, is helping deliver a programme of capacity building in Myanmar in relation to trade and investment policy and analysis. The training intends to equip policymakers to benefit from processes of global integration that represent both challenge as well as opportunity for Myanmar, in so far as the country’s growth prospects depend increasingly on external economic environment. In this initial training workshop, ESCAP will deliver training sessions on ‘Trade and Regional Integration’ and ‘Trade and Gender’ as part of the broader programme. Three further sessions are planned for 2014/15.
