The major objective of the National workshop is to raise awareness among a broad range of interested stakeholders, of the potential of the CAREC region and the benefits that a CAREC-wide FTA could offer. The Workshop is intended to launch a broad-based and inclusive public discussion on the topic and target a wide range of stakeholders at the national level – public, private, civil society, and other interested parties.
Participants: Mid- and senior-level public officials responsible for trade policy in CAREC DMC, business chambers and associations, relevant civil society organizations from Uzbekistan.
The FTA training activity will take place immediately following a national workshop. Unlike the national workshop, the training activity is primarily a capacity building exercise intended to provide a brief overview of both the substantive and procedural/organizational/strategic aspects of preparing for and successfully completing trade negotiations. Trade practitioners representing Uzbekistan’s government agencies and leading research centers and think tanks are kindly invited to join this training activity.
Participants: Junior and mid-level government officers already working on the trade related issues in ministries and agencies of Uzbekistan.
