Through this theme, the Geneva Trade Platform works to support policy making and the discourse around issues which trade is relevant to, but which have generally resided outside the core.
Increasingly, issues traditionally seen as on the periphery of the trade policy conversation are becoming the focus of such discussions in Geneva, and around the world. Our goal is to support and inform the process, bringing new players into the conversation and equipping them with not only the opportunity, but the information and assistance they need to inform policy making.
Under the Trade and... theme the GTP supports work on issues including:
- Gender and women's economic empowerment
- Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs)
