Description
This is a Level 2 specialized training activity implemented within the WTO Progressive Learning Strategy. The Workshop offers targeted training to government officials from various government agencies in Bahrain, who have direct responsibilities in preparing and analysing notifications under the WTO Agreement on Import Licensing Procedures or who are responsible for the implementation of the country's import control policies. One of the main incentives of the Workshop is to increase all participants' awareness of notification obligations of the Agreement, in particular of those from ministries not directly responsible for trade, so as to facilitate information collection within the country and improve Bahrain's notification compliance.

The objectives of the Workshop are: (1) to enhance the understanding of the Agreement on Import Licensing Procedures, and to clarifying the scope and coverage of import licensing and specific notification requirements in particular; to enable Bahrain officials to fulfil their notification obligations under the Agreement through hands-on practices and learning by doing; (3) to teach participants how to access import licensing data and documents on the WTO website. By the end of the training, participants are expected to be able to know how to prepare import licensing notifications and use the proper notification templates.

During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn good practices of other Members in preparing notifications through case studies. They will be requested to work in groups and prepare presentations on import licensing implementations in different ministries. In addition, they will learn how to draft WTO notifications under various provisions of the Agreement.
