International Trade Forum

The International Trade Forum is the magazine of the International Trade Centre (ITC). It focuses on trade promotion and export development, as part of ITC’s technical cooperation programme with developing countries and economies in transition. The magazine is published quarterly since 1964 in English, French and Spanish.


Ensuring business-friendly services regulation through dialogue

The linkage between regulatory reform and liberalization in services trade has been receiving increased attention from international institutions including the World Bank, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the World Trade Organization. Building on their work, the International Trade Centre (ITC) is launching an assessment framework to promote business-friendly services regulations. Understanding trade restrictions is particularly pertinent in a global economy where supply chains are fragmented. Reducing burdensome services trade restrictions is thus an important part of the reform process.
