Activity summary:

The International Trade Centre UNCTAD/WTO (ITC) is the technical cooperation arm of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) for operational and enterprise-oriented aspects of international trade development. ITC works with developing countries and economies in transition to set up effective trade promotion programmes for expanding their exports and improving their import operations. Its field of specialization covers six key areas: product and market development, development of trade support services, trade information, human resources development, international purchasing and supply management, and needs assessment and programme design for trade promotion. The legal status of ITC is that of a joint subsidiary organ of the WTO and the United Nations, the latter acting through UNCTAD.
