From May 7-11, CLDP conducted a workshop in Colombo, Sri Lanka for newly-appointed Afghanistan Commercial Attachés.  The program featured presentations and interactive discussions with experts from the US and Sri Lankan Commercial Services, the World Trade Organization (WTO) Secretariat, the International Senior Lawyers Project, and former International Trade Centre staff.

Over the course of the week, Afghanistan officials became familiar with U.S. and Sri Lankan approaches to commercial diplomacy, basic WTO disciplines, trade promotion and market access strategies, business export readiness assessments, bilateral and regional trade agreements, methods for navigating trade concerns, and strategies for developing relationships with foreign firms and encouraging foreign direct investment.
