Philippine Learning Centre for Trade and Investment Policy
An off-shoot of the Institutionalization of Multi-Stakeholder Consultation for Trade Policy and Negotiations (I-MUST for Trade), the Universal Access to Competitiveness and Trade (U-ACT), in collaboration with the International Trade Centre, a joint agency of World Trade Organization (WTO) and United Nations (UN), has developed the Institutionalization of Multi-Stakeholder Professional Program for Learning and Universal Skills in Trade Policy and Negotiations (I-MUST PLUS).
This aims to operationalise the academic and professional module and course development program of the Philippine Learning Centre for Trade and Investment Policy (PLACE).
I-MUST PLUS CORE COURSE
A weeklong, back-to-back course designed especially for CEOs and trade specialists that covers an integrated module-based approach on the basic elements of the trade agreements in goods and services, their implications to business; role of business in trade policy reform as well as the emerging issues in bilateral, regional and multilateral treaties; investments, disputes and trade remedies. The I-MUST PLUS Executive and Core Course Programs are the centerpiece course programs of the Philippine Learning Centre for Trade and Investment Policy.
The drive to create a more enhanced learning platform would be addressed by supplementary courses that I-MUST PLUS would offer. These include courses on Tariffs Nomenclature, Customs Valuation and Rules of Origin, Agriculture, Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Measures and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), Competition Policy, Trade in Services, International Trade and Business Environment and Trade Remedies, among others.
