CLDP, in cooperation with the Institute of Training and Technical Cooperation (ITTC) and the Accession Division of the World Trade Organization (WTO), will hold a specialized workshop in Geneva, Switzerland on March 17-21, 2014 for a delegation of sixteen Iraqi officials from the Iraq Task Force on WTO Accession.
The Accession Working Party for Iraq was established in December of 2004, and the last Working Party meeting was held in April 2008.
The GoI is now positioned to move forward with the submission of key documents and, in a demonstration of high-level political will, plans to send a large inter-ministerial delegation to the workshop in Geneva.
WTO experts will discuss with the Task Force the accession process, technical documentation to be submitted, and will define next steps. At the conclusion of the workshop, Iraq’s delegation and CLDP will prepare a tentative roadmap and definition of the work to be done by private consultants for the Government of Iraq.
THIS WAS DONE LAST WEEK.
