Workshop on “Trade regulations: implications for the financing of trade”


Geneva, 9 December 2016

Workshop – Trade regulations: implications for the financing of trade

Opened by the Secretary-General of UNCTAD, Dr. Mukhisa Kutuyi, alongside the Director of the Division of Enterprises and Institutions from ITC, Mr. Anders Aeroe, and Mr. Olatayo Omidiji, Assistant General Manager of NEXIM Bank (on behalf of the Honorary President, Mr. Bashir Wali), the workshop addressed three main issues:

  • the importance of trade regulations for the financing of trade (positive or negative),
  • international databases and surveys on trade regulation (UNCTAD’s TRAINS non-tariff measures data, Market Access Map and large-scale business surveys, and the Integrated Trade Intelligence Portal of the WTO for goods and services),
  • specific issues of interest for policy banks (treatment of concessionality in the statistics of OECD’s Development Assistance Committee and WTO subsidy rules and trade financing by State-owned policy banks).
