On June 22 and 23, CLDP held a two-day live virtual training with experts from the Asia International Arbitration Center (AIAC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the staff of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Centers from Afghanistan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka. The online training focused on the business and operation of an ADR Center. The training covered topics on business development, the role of staff and board members, institution operations, and the various services an ADR center offers. The goal of the program was to have the three CLDP-supported ADR institutions focus on business development and financial sustainability of their respective centers. CLDP has been supporting alternative dispute resolution as a means of resolving disputes efficiently and transparently in Afghanistan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka, by support the ADR Centers in the three countries.

Upcoming Programs

July 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020

In July, August, and September 2020, CLDP, in collaboration with USTR and the University of Missouri, will provide virtual business fundamental courses to 20 Salvadoran textile representatives. CLDP has partnered with a textile and apparel expert who will conduct group sessions, as well as tailored sessions depending on the needs and businesses of the selected representatives. Lessons will cover business plan development and implementation, mentorship opportunities, local business resources, and personnel management. Furthermore, the sessions will give the Salvadoran textiles representatives the opportunity to begin developing comprehensive plans to effectively disseminate the knowledge they acquire during this program broadly across the industry with other textile professionals in El Salvador. Participants, who represent the Salvadoran private sector, key government agencies, and academia, will continue to engage their U.S. counterparts in this project for the remainder of the CLDP programming throughout 2021. This project is a part of CLDP’s and USTR’s capacity-building program to improve regional prosperity by fostering human and institutional capacity to improve the competitiveness of the Salvadoran textile industry.
