Workshop on Analyzing Non-Tariff Measures

March 14, 2016 - March 17, 2016

- Jakarta

Non-tariff measures (NTM) and their trade effects is essential to understanding 21st-century trade patterns. While many NTMs are focussed on non-trade objectives, such as protecting public health or the environment, they can unintentionally become discriminatory. The ability for a country to enter new markets depends increasingly on compliance with NTMS that are not addressed in traditional trade policies. To enhance understanding of NTMs, the TPSA Project organized a training program in March 2016 for 30 government officials from the Ministry of Trade delivered by an expert from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). In addition to an introductory overview, the UNCTAD experts delivered in-depth assessments of NTMs in priority product markets of Indonesia. Following the workshop, the UNCTAD expert worked remotely (through Skype) with the participants to continue the training.
