Promotion of WTO-trade related Technical Assistance and Capacity Building
Description/achievement of initiative

International trade plays an important role in the promotion of economic development and poverty reduction. From this perspective, we have to make efforts in providing technical assistance and promoting capacity building in order that developing countries may benefit from the multilateral trading system.

* Especially, we confirmed the important role of technical assistance and capacity building in the Doha Declaration. In this regard, we will work actively to ensure the success of the Fifth Ministerial Conference in addition to the above-mentioned strategy.

Expected results include:
To deepen knowledge and understanding of developing countries (especially countries in Africa) related to WTO negotiation in the new issues (investment, competition, trade facilitation, transparency in government procurement), which are supposed to be one of the focuses at the new round.
