OPM provided background briefing and technical analysis to the Government of Tanzania in its preparations for the WTO ministerial meeting in Hong Kong. The analysis covered seven major components of the WTO negotiating agenda: agriculture, cotton, non-agricultural market access, services, trade facilitation, trade-related aspects of intellectual property and development. OPM prepared eight background briefing documents providing detailed technical analysis of Tanzania’s interests in the WTO negotiations and recommendations of what this should imply for its negotiating position. We facilitated a major national stakeholder workshop to discuss this analysis and also briefed the Tanzanian delegation in advance of its attendance at the ministerial.
