International Trade Centre (ITC)
The ITC was established by the World Trade Organisation and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and its mission is to enable small business export success in developing countries. The ITC works with trade support institutions so that they are better able to support exporters and it also works directly with exporters to strengthen their competitiveness and with policy makers to help them integrate the private sector in the global economy. As part of its overall funding to ITC, Ireland is supporting an ITC pilot project in cross border trade between Liberia and Sierra Leone running from 2012 – 2014. Trade service providers, with a particular emphasis on young service providers and youth enterprises, will be supported to advise on cross-border trade requirements and to provide market information on food products.
