17 Jan 2013
The World Trade Organization Secretariat (WTO) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), through the Integration and Trade Sector and its Institute for the Integration of Latin America and the Caribbean (INTAL) and the CARICOM Secretariat, are jointly organizing an “Regional Workshop on Trade and Environment for Caribbean Countries”, that will be held at the “Four Seasons Hotel”, Kingston, Jamaica, on January 15th to 17th, 2013.
The Workshop will focus on several key trade and environment issues facing Caribbean countries. Its main objective is to enhance participants' understanding of the nexus between trade and environment issues in their countries and region, thereby supporting the effective participation of Caribbean countries in multilateral and regional trade negotiations and discussions. The workshop will seek to provide a forum for information exchange and experience sharing on key issues related to environment and trade. At the end of the activity, participants are expected to have consolidated their knowledge on multilateral and regional work on trade and environment and to have strengthened their ability to engage more actively in that work.
The Workshop is addressed to capital-based government officials from the CARICOM Member Countries. Caribbean Ministries responsible for Trade and/or Environment issues are invited to nominate up to four officials. Up to two participants per country will be selected by the organizing institutions. IDB/INTAL will cover travel expenses for the selected participants.
A team of experts from WTO, IDB and other regional organizations will lead the discussions during the Workshop.
The deadline for countries to nominate their candidates is December 11th, 2012. The Workshop is closed to the general public.
