The main topic of the seminar was on "Market Access and International Trade Law". In their evaluation questionnaires a majority of participants mentioned as particularly beneficial were the e-Learning sessions which gave the participants "smart tools" for analyzing trade policy and potential. The participants highlighted that the consultations focus on market access a new and complex topic for the delegation would enrich their knowledge and add a new dimension to their current trade studies."
