Trade-related technical assistance (TRTA) and capacity-building (CB) are recognized as core elements of the multilateral trading system (MTS). Trade capacity-building, which provides direct support to beneficiary countries in enhancing their human and institutional capacities to deal with the challenges emerging from the MTS, is a key component of the Aid-for-Trade work programme.
The “Global Trade-Related Technical Assistance Database (GTAD)” is a portal of exchange and information sharing on the future execution of TRTA and CB activities. It can facilitate inter-agency coordination and strengthen coherence in the delivery of TRTA programmes.
The GTAD, which is hosted and managed by the World Trade Organization (WTO), comprises several partner agencies, with a view to share responsibility and co-operation in this field. It is a window through which interested stakeholders can consult the activities planned by the partner agencies and submit queries on specific activities to the WTO Secretariat.
The GTAD includes an interactive search engine which takes into account national and regional projects, as well as training courses classified against close to thirty trade-related technical assistance and capacity-building categories.
