Dear Vi friends,
We have received 223 applications for the 40 places available in the upcomingVi online course on non-tariff measures (NTM) and data collection to be held September 1 to October 19.
Developed by the Vi and the Trade Information Section of UNCTAD's Division on International Trade in Goods and Services and Commodities, the course was developed to train experts around the world who can effectively collect and classify information about these measures.
Candidates must hold a Master's Degree in Economics, Law, or International Relations. Applications may also be accepted from students enrolled in such programmes who hold a Bachelor's degree in one of these fields. Also required are: basic knowledge of Microsoft Excel, very good knowledge of English, and familiarity with government/ministry structures responsible for setting regulations.
All selected participants will be exempt from course fees, and will receive the course CD/DVD free-of-charge. Top graduates will become part of the UNCTAD NTM consultancy roster, and may be considered for future data collection or related work.
Applications must be submitted online no later than July 24.
Please circulate widely.
