Sri Lanka Hosts Commonwealth Policymakers Workshop on Post-Nairobi WTO Issues

As many as sixty participants, including senior officials from over fifteen countries, the Commonwealth Secretariat and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) gathered in Colombo from 16 - 18 March 2016 for a 3-day workshop, which focused on how to boost trade competitiveness of developing countries in the Post-Nairobi WTO context.

Capacity constraints in developing and LDC economies, stalling multilateral trade negotiations under the WTO-led Doha Development Agenda,  emergence of mega free trade agreements (FTAs) such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and the increasing involvement of labour rights, investment rules, state-owned enterprises etc., in such FTAs were some of the key topics discussed during this occasion.

The workshop was organized by the Commonwealth Secretariat in close collaboration with the Department of Commerce of Sri Lanka, the IISD, the Institute of Policy Studies and the Sri Lanka High Commission in London.
