The Joint Programme on Effective Trade Policy formulation is a programme implemented under the framework of “Deliver as One”. The purpose of the programme is to enhance Mozambique’s participation in the global trading system over the medium to long term by:

  • Strengthening coordination and stakeholder understanding of trade issues by improving the quality of policy analysis that will lead to better prepared negotiating policy positions and briefs, through the preparation of high-quality analytical studies designed to illuminate key trade issues, and that enable decision makers to develop effective trade development programmes and policies;
  • Addressing supply side constraints (including meeting product standards) and increasing the capacity of enterprises to compete locally and globally, including enabling enterprises to formulate sound international business strategies, become export-ready and convert commercial opportunities into actual business;
  • Providing better training for officials involved in trade policy formulation and trade negotiations. This training is designed to enable officials to engage more effectively, including effective consideration of business implications of negotiation, in the activities of the WTO and regional economic communities;
  • Building greater analytical capacity designed to increase the number of experts familiar with current trade policy issues, trade analytic tools, and the functioning of the regional and global trading systems; and
  • Improving the organization and availability of quantitative and qualitative data and information on trade, improving the analysis and dissemination of trade market information to assist in monitoring trade flows and preparing thorough and professional negotiating briefs.

It is also expected that the Joint Programme will create a window of  opportunity for the UN to contribute to building Mozambique’s capacity to effectively participate in, and benefit from, the regional and global trading processes. It is further expected that these areas of intervention will compliment ongoing reforms that are targeting the improvement of the business environment.
