Upcoming Programs

November 19, 2019 - November 20, 2019

On November 19-20, 2019, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, CLDP & ITA conducted a workshop on effective interagency coordination to facilitate comprehensive publication of trade-related and centrally-published information. Participants included technical representatives from the Honduran and Guatemalan Ministries of Economy, Customs, Health, and Agriculture, and Honduran private sector representatives. During the workshop the Honduran participants met with their U.S. counterparts from the Department of Commerce, Customs and Border Protection, Health and Human Services, and the Food and Drug Administration to learn best practices for coordinating across trade ministries and publishing trade-related information in a non-discriminatory, easy-to-access manner. With support from the Honduran-American Chamber of Commerce, the participants shared respective efforts to encourage trade through greater transparency and improve publication practices. This workshop was part of a multiphase effort to promote transparency, cooperation, and coordination within the Honduran government, and to improve interregional trade in Central America.

CLDP in Action

October 23, 2019 - October 24, 2019

On October 23-24 in Tunis, Tunisia, CLDP held a workshop to identify potential changes to Tunisian law that would encourage increased cross-border eCommerce transactions for both exports and imports. Over 40 representatives from several government ministries, the private sector, and the NGO community discussed potential amendments to Tunisia’s eCommerce law, customs procedures, central bank currency and payment rules, and other matters.  The participants offered sets of informal recommendations for further action.

ECommerce in Tunisia has not reached its full potential, although there are black market eCommerce websites. Legal changes could help Tunisian SMEs and individuals reach new markets, while also providing opportunities for US sellers.
