Regional Training of Trainers Workshop on Trade Facilitation & Paperless Systems for Agrifood Products
The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) will organize a regional Training of Trainer Workshop on Trade Facilitation and Paperless Systems for Agrifood Products from 15 to 17 December 2014. The purpose of the workshop is to strengthen the capacity of regulatory agencies and other stakeholders involved in agricultural and food products trade to participate in and implement paperless systems aimed at facilitating trade and enhancing the international marketability of agrifood products.
The workshop is targeted both at trainers from relevant training institutes and agricultural extension services in developing countries, particularly least developed countries (LDCs), as well as at relevant officials in charge of agrifood trade facilitation and promotion. It is designed to introduce the participants to the relevant issues, concepts, standards and available training material associated with trade facilitation and the implementation of relevant paperless systems, including electronic traceability systems.
