TAF project on trade in services delivers regional workshop in Sri Lanka

December 16th, 2015 by

As part its on-going support on trade in services, TAF recently delivered a regional training workshop for the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) region. The workshop, titled “Enhancing Capacities for Trade in Services Policymaking and Negotiations” was held in Colombo, Sri Lanka between 17 and 20 November 2015 with the aim of contributing to the increased and more effective participation of developing countries and their associated Regional Economic Communities in multilateral, regional and bilateral services trade negotiations.

Representatives from Sri Lanka, India, Nepal and Bangladesh participated in the workshop, comprising a mix of government, private sector and civil society stakeholders. The workshop centered around three themes: the collection and use of services trade statistics, institutional mechanisms for services-related decision-making and improving competitiveness in the services sector.

The workshop was delivered by International Lawyers and Economists Against Poverty (ILEAP), CUTS International Geneva and the Centre for the Analysis of Regional Integration at Sussex (CARIS), who are managing the trade in services support for TAF, alongside the Institute of Policy Studies of Sri Lanka (IPS). A second regional workshop for the countries in the East African Community will be delivered in Nairobi, Kenya at the end of January 2016.

To read more about the workshop in Colombo, please read this article in the Sri Lanka Daily Mirror. To access the case studies, toolkits and training material developed under TAF’s trade in services project, please visit www.tradeinservices.net and follow the link “Project Outcomes”.
