Thirty-six students and lecturers from seven Colombian Vi member universities participated in a study tour of Geneva-based international organizations November 14-18.
With the substantial reduction of the level of tariffs worldwide, countries are increasingly resorting to the use of non-tariff measures (NTMs) to regulate trade. While many NTMs pursue legitimate public policy interests, there can be cases when they act as non-tariff barriers (NTB) to trade, which can then become a concern to countries like Colombia.
It is in order to better comprehend this complex issue that the Vi university members in Colombia requested this year's study tour to concentrate specifically on this topic.
