The ESCWA Committee on Trade Policies held its 3rd session in Tunisia on 7 and 8 March to follow up on related international and regional conferences and forums, to harmonize trade policies and to coordinate Arab positions on a global scale.
The third session focused on different components of the Arab Trade Gateway developed by ESCWA to support member States with trade data analysis and modeling. Participants also followed up on the work of ESCWA in trade policies, and learned about the use of blockchain technologies to facilitate trade.
On 6 March, ESCWA also held a regional workshop to build the capacity of national teams to use the Arab Trade Policy Simulation Interface (ATSI) to simulate commercial policies and evaluate them.
