In the 21st Century, deepening international integration has become a prominent feature of the international landscape. As interdependence among nations has grown, it has created new and complex public policy challenges that can only be addressed by well informed policymakers.

This five-day course aims at equipping trade policymakers with the needed knowledge and understanding to help them better design and implement integration policies that are conducive to inclusive growth and employment creation.

It is designed for mid-to senior-level officials (from planning, trade and industry, economy, finance, as well as other sectoral ministries). It may also benefit various development stakeholders and change agents (for example CSOs, Think Tanks, Media, and Parliamentarians) as well as academics or analysts who may serve as advisors to their governments.

The course will emphasize the economic and development implications of trade policy reforms. It will give approximately equal weight to trade policy principles, lessons and good practices from trade policy experience, the trade/growth/employment linkages, the multilateralism (WTO) agenda, and the regionalism agenda (covering North-South and South-South agreements, including FTAs), with a good dose of case studies, including on unilateral trade reforms.

This course is jointly offered by the IMF Middle East Center for Economics & Finance (CEF) and the World Bank Institute.
