Co-Organized by United Nations ESCAP, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia and Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry
As of 1 January 2021, trade preference to Mongolia under the Asia-Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA) became effective from all APTA members, except India. Since Mongolia’s trade with APTA Participating States accounts for 90% of her exports and 30% of her imports, accession to APTA could have a significant impact even with the currently limited scope of tariff concessions. To raise awareness of APTA and promote its utilization by the private sector, including the media, businesses, and chambers of commerce, United Nations ESCAP is organizing a second workshop in collaboration with Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia and Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, following the workshop held in October 2020. This workshop will provide participants an opportunity to learn about APTA, its potential benefits, and the practical experience with its utilization in other Participating States.
