In the framework of the ITC programme on non-tariff measures, national surveys have been undertaken in four member countries of the League of Arab States (LAS), namely in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and the State of Palestine. The “fast track” activities intended to complete a cross country analysis of the results and findings from the four surveys. The in-depth analysis was presented to member countries and regional partners to identify concrete actions at national and regional levels that will help reduce or eliminate existing trade related obstacles.
- Regional workshops held to discuss Non-tariff measures (NTM) survey results and how to address them
- Provision of policy recommendations to address selected NTM
- Three national non-tariff measure surveys initiated
