||“The International Trade Centre UNCTAD/WTO (ITC) is the focal point in the United Nations System for technical cooperation with developing countries in trade promotion. ITC was created by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in 1964 and since 1968 has been operated jointly by GATT (now by the World Trade Organization, or WTO) and the UN, the latter acting through the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).” (See About ITC, ITC in brief, Introduction).
The web site provides information on ITC products & services, business supports (including access to online databases), partners & networks and publications. The “Countries” section provides country and region-specific overviews of ITC’s technical cooperation activities. The magazine of the ITC, International Trade Forum, is also accessible from the web site. ITC and its publications are uniquely focused on providing information and services to small and medium-sized enterprises and exporters. The “Products & Services” section is notable because of its explanation of the ITC’s market development programmes for specific products and services, such as coffee, textiles, and organic products.
