Trade in the 21st Century: Legal and policy considerations for Africa
tralac would like to thank all those who applied for the e-learning course ‘Trade in the 21st Century: Legal and policy considerations for Africa.’
Navigating the challenges of trade policy and regulation has never been more complicated or more important. Africa needs to pursue a 21st century trade and integration regime, prioritizing the movement of capital and people, trade facilitation, regulatory disciplines and dispute settlement that is accessible to all parties, including the private sector. This has the potential to increase trade, create jobs and grow industries.
If you work in a national or regional government, or if you are involved in trade and investment across borders – then this course is an opportunity to engage with this trade agenda and learn how and why trade is so important for our social and economic development. On completion of the course, you will be armed with the knowledge and skills to contribute to sustainable development and African integration through trade.
