Albania WTO Compliance Audit (Phase I)

May 24, 2004 - May 28, 2004

During the first half of the program, staff members from the Ministry of Economy’s WTO Secretariat met with Mr. Creskoff, CLDP Resident Advisor Barbara Hall and CLDP International Program Specialist Tatiana Aras to update and revise a WTO compliance matrix that was developed in 2002 by CLDP Advisor Roberto Garcia. The draft matrix was presented at the first inter-ministerial meeting for discussion. As a result of Phase I of the program, Albanian MoE officials gained the necessary knowledge to revise and update the compliance matrix in order to write the WTO compliance audit report in Phase II. In addition, participants at the inter-ministerial meeting, the first of its kind, realized the need for and committed to improved communication between the ministries and organizations in order to establish a more effective system for the dissemination of information, specifically WTO notifications and compliance issues.
