Up-coming Workshop

International merchandise trade statistics:
Focusing on goods traded under preferential trade agreements

Fiji, 26 February to 2 March 2018

The Pacific Community, in partnership with the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, the Oceania Customs Organisation, and the Melanesian Spearhead Group Secretariat, will be conducting a technical workshop entitled International merchandise trade statistics: Focusing on goods traded under the preferential trade agreements, from 26 February to 2 March 2018 at the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat in Suva.

The reason for holding this workshop is twofold: the first is to deepen the knowledge of Pacific Islands statisticians on preferential trade agreements applicable in the region and the practice through which the goods are traded under these preferences; the second is to identify those goods for the compilation of detailed, reliable and timely official statistics.

The workshop will provide an overview of trade agreements in general, how the agreements work and their benefits, and the range of commodities traded and how they can be identified at source for the compilation of official trade statistics. Representatives of trade and border agencies will also share practical approaches to improving access to, and the quality of, trade statistics in the region.

Statistics on goods traded under the preferential trade agreements are needed by Pacific Islands governments for the effective monitoring of the implementation of the preferential trade agreements, and for meaningful policy formulation leading to positive adjustments to trade regimes in the region.
