A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development


The World Trade Organization has chosen Bogotá's Universidad Sergio Arboleda to host its regional courses on trade policy for Latin America for the next three years. The university's bid came on top out of the 16 proposals received from countries in the region.

"This is without doubt good news," said Dr. Rodrigo Noguera, university Rector. "It represents for the university the enhancement of its institutional capacity, through the WTO secretariat's training and consolidating of our human resources to offer training and research programs on international trade."

Virtual Institute member coordinator, Dr. Ramón Eduardo Guacaneme P., Director of the specialization in international trade will lead the courses.

The first course will take place before the end of the year.
