The WTO has provided St Vincent and the Grenadines with computer equipment to facilitate the operation of a WTO Reference Centre. The objective of the Reference Centre is to enable government officials, the private sector and the academic community to have a regular updated and direct privileged link to the trade information resources of the WTO Secretariat, Geneva.

Officials of the WTO will conduct training on the use of the Centre. The training will be conducted in two phases. The first phase of the programme will target government officials, November 11 to 12, while the private sector will have its turn on the 13th. The training will take place at the Ministry’s conference room.
