Support of Multilateral and Regional Trade Negotiations

The OIC Member States are invited to actively participate in multilateral trade negotiations within the WTO and within the framework of regional groups. ICDT provides technical assistance to Member States in these negotiations. The activities organized by ICDT aim at providing an opportunity to the negotiators to be informed on the state of play of the issues discussed in the WTO as well as on the related subjects relating to regional integration such as the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the Arab League and other agreements at the Asian level.

The workshops planned for 2023 in partnership with IsDB, UNCTAD and WTO will focus on the outcomes of MC12, preparations for MC13 as well as the establishment of the AfCFTA.
