Preparation of a Training Manual on International Trade

Under the Nepal Economic, Agriculture and Trade (NEAT) Activity implemented by Chemonics International and supported by USAID, SAWTEE prepared a training manual on international trade, which was handed over to the Ministry of Commerce and Supplies, Government of Nepal. Based on the manual, a training programme on international trade issues was organized for relevant government officials of different ministries and departments, the Central Bank, and researchers, mainly representing the private sector, working on trade issues. Following the training, a few participants were selected to conduct studies on trade flows of tea and lentils. The study team conducted the studies based on available literature and field visits. The findings of the studies were later presented in a dissemination meeting in Kathmandu.
