Noting the importance of trade-related capacity building and
technical cooperation for strengthening the participation of
resource-constrained countries and customs territories in the

and customs territories in effectively participating in
trade-related activities and multilateral trade negotiations
particularly when they face financial, human-resource and other
constraints;

In view of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu and AITIC's common
objectives in the area of assistance to the trade negotiating
capacity of the developing countries and economies in
transition, particularly the least-developed countries and those
without permanent representation in Geneva;

programmes;

Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu and AITIC in assisting target
countries to participate more actively in the trade-related
intergovernmental (and other) Geneva-based institutions,
Agree to the following Memorandum of Understanding which will

representatives from less-advantaged countries (LACs) and
independent customs territories the opportunity to receive
professional training, improve their knowledge of both the
functioning and the subject matter of the Geneva-based
trade-related institutions and participate in the regular
activities of the international trade community in Geneva. The
Programme is targeted towards mid-level or senior officials
from LACs facing particular budgetary or other constraints
that preclude their participation in the activities work
programmes and negotiations of the Geneva-based trade-related
institutions.
In keeping with the purpose of the Programme, it is
anticipated that Professional Trainees will participate in
trade-related activities at Geneva-based institutions. These
activities may include attending meetings of the various WTO
bodies and participation in the negotiations, Activities may
also include interaction with other trade-related
international organizations (e.g., ITC, UNCTAD) or
intergovernmental institutions that have a close relationship
with trade (e.g., UNEP, WIPO, WHO).
It is expected that the Professional Trainees would also
contribute to AITIC's programmes and activities. They would
also be able to network and interact with officials and
members of the intergovernmental organizations. At the
conclusion of their tenure at AITIC, the Professional Trainees
would return to their respective national administration to
continue their contribution to trade policy-making, equipped
with an enhanced understanding of international trade.

begin in April 2007.
ii.The duration of the Professional Training will be from six
