International Trade Centre (ITC)
The International Trade Centre is the technical cooperation agency of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). ITC specializes in trade promotion for developing countries and economies in transition.
ITC’s mission is to develop the business sectors of developing and transition economies, in order to expand exports and improve import operations. ITC works with developing countries to set up national trade promotion programs aimed at expanding exports and improving import operations.
This includes working with their government and business sectors to develop a solid framework for trade promotion and export development, finding market opportunities for export products, designing export marketing strategies and developing new products for export, improving the efficiency of import operations and techniques, and training government and business offi cials in foreign trade methods. In all of its activities, ITC gives particular attention to the least developed countries (LDCs).
