In April 2014, UNIDO is organizing a training course on regional trade capacity-building for participants from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine in Warsaw, Poland.
This training is targeted at government officials, mid-level trade policy makers, quality management professionals, mid-level policy makers from central and regional bodies, representatives of national think tanks, universities and trade/industry leaders engaged in trade policy and institution development processes.
The training activities will focus on trade policy issues. Special attention will be given to the following topics:

Architecture of quality infrastructure (standardization bodies, metrology laboratories, accreditation bodies support, development of competent authorities for exports)
Technical barriers to trade/sanitary and phytosanitary (TBT/SPS) agreements and implications
Supportive quality infrastructure
A detailed outline of the modules of the course, can be downloaded here.
The course will be taught by UNIDO experts in trade capacity-building, professionals from other international organizations, high-level policymakers and internationally renowned academics. The course will be conducted in English.
The training will consist of a preliminary four-week e-learning component and an eight-day residential course. Among those who successfully pass the online course, the best-performing 25 participants will be selected and invited for the in-residence course in Warsaw. Accommodation, living expenses and travel will be covered by UNIDO.
