Handling Concerns Relating to Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT)
12 March 2015 | World Meteorological Organization (WMO)
The ACWL’s outreach activities are an important means of ensuring that developing countries and LDCs are sufficiently familiar with the opportunities offered by the ACWL. The ACWL organises its own outreach activities and participates as frequently as possible in those conducted by the WTO and other organizations.
The ACWL’s lawyers also regularly participate in training programmes, moot court exercises, and presentations to students conducted by academic and non-governmental organizations such as the World Trade Institute (WTI) in Bern and the Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO). These activities enable the ACWL to explain its services and the role of developing countries and the LDCs in the multilateral trading system to civil society. This is an important means of raising awareness of the ACWL.
The ACWL’s lawyers are frequently invited to speak at seminars and conferences on international trade law issues.
Finally, the ACWL regularly makes presentations to students of international trade law and policy that visit Geneva.
