Training to Global Standards

Exporting and International Trade is a highly technical part of the global economy. So the right level of training needs to be taken at the right time, following a structured approach. This is GDP Global’s approach, shaped by the needs of the government trade promotion organisations, following the direction of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) as well as the World Customs Organisation (WCO), The International Chamber of Commerce, UNCTAD and the International Trade Centre (ITC).
