Egypt-Capacity Building for Commercial Attaches: USTR and the Generalized System of Preferences for Egypt

August 19, 2020

CLDP will conduct a multi-month program to build the capacity of a group of 14 Egyptian commercial attaches, with a quadruple focus: 1- Providing knowledge about international trade and the WTO; 2- Developing skills and knowledge required for increasing Egypt’s exports; 3-  Developing skills and knowledge required for attracting foreign investment into Egypt; 4- Developing skills and knowledge required for facilitating joint-ventures between Egyptian firms and foreign firms. 

Until international travel resumes, this program will be conducted through a series of video-conferences and webinars. The third phase of the program will be a video-conference that will take place in the second half of August 2020. 

Its purpose will be to help the Egyptian commercial attaches gain a good understanding of: a) USTR’s mission, structure, responsibilities, and key activities; and, b) The U.S. Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) for Egypt, overseen by USTR.

Members of the USTR team whose portfolio includes Egypt will take part in the video-conference. In preparation for the video-conference, CLDP will send to the commercial attaches two documents: a document  presenting USTR, document cleared by USTR; a USTR presentation of the GSP system for Egypt :(https://ustr.gov/sites/default/files/EGYPT%20PPT%201-7-12.pdf)

The videoconference will consist of two parts:

- A brief presentation by USTR of its mission, structure, responsibilities, and key activities. This presentation will be followed by an extensive questions and answers (Q&A) session.

- A brief presentation by USTR of the GSP system for Egypt. This presentation will be followed by an extensive questions and answers (Q&A) session

CLDP will moderate the video-conference to ensure that it is constructive for both sides.
