    Trade Online: New Web Resources


    International Trade Forum - Issue 1/2009

    ITC offers a wealth of online resources on trade development topics. Among new sites online:

    ITC is '100% Aid for Trade'

    Aid for Trade, which helps developing countries to build trade-related skills and infrastructure to boost exports and benefit from international trade accords, is even more vital in this current economic crisis. As part of the second Aid for Trade review led by the World Trade Organization, ITC is mobilizing the voice of the private sector in regional and global Aid for Trade meetings. Web pages include the international calendar of Aid for Trade reviews, ITC position papers, success stories and recommendations.

    Empowering Women - Powering Trade

    To contribute to mainstreaming the participation of women in trade, ITC has launched a new online portal dedicated to women and trade. This one-stop gateway to ITC initiatives, events and articles also has links to broader events and information resources to bridge the gender gap through trade.
