Regional Strategy Seminar on Finance-Trade Linkages - Asia (June 2006)

"

The Regional Strategy Seminar on Trade – Finance Linkages (Asia) is the second in a series of regional seminars being convened by members of the International Working Group on Trade - Finance Linkages. Such International Working Group brings together civil society organizations from both trade and financial backgrounds, North and South, with the goals of:

 

  1. increasing the effectiveness of trade and financial NGOs in achieving their respective advocacy agendas,

     

  2. find points of synergy and

     

  3. build a common, proactive advocacy platform that link trade and financial policies in ways supportive of enlarged local policy space for implementation of alternatives that promote development, gender, human rights and the environment.

     

Like the previous regional seminar, this one is oriented to strengthen the organic and sustained input of members from the region in the agenda and priority-setting of the working group and the North-South flow of information. The seminar will address ways to effectively expand and protect, across the institutions that are the target of trade and finance watchdog organizations, the policy space needed for the adoption of alternative policies. For this reflection it will use as a platform the sectors that are the backbone of the productive economy: agriculture, industry, services and power of the state to regulate foreign capital flows. The seminar will also address the potential of using trade-finance linkages in order to strategically shift the balance of ongoing negotiations in financial and trade venues.
