Advanced Trade Negotiation Training

September 14, 2015 - September 18, 2015

- Depok

Indonesia has been quite active in pursuing free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations. To better equip the Indonesian government in this regard, the TPSA project organized an advanced trade negotiation skills program September 14–18, 2015. The course was held at the Ministry of Trade Training Centre near Jakarta and was led by Professor Dickson Yeboah, Head of the Intensive Trade Negotiations Skills Unit at the Institute for Training and Technical Cooperation of the WTO in Geneva. The course was designed to provide participants with the knowledge, strategies, and tactics to conduct negotiations, and with techniques of systematic decision analysis for monitoring and managing the negotiating process. The five-day course consisted of lectures, group discussions, and mock-up negotiations where participants negotiated for fictional countries such as Jupistan and Neptunia. The training was attended by 40 government and private-sector participants.
