Differences in regulatory systems, and the difficulty in complying with standards, have been identified by the private sector as the second and third greatest concern about doing business in other Commonwealth countries. In December 2020, Draft Commonwealth Good Regulatory Principles were presented at the 4th meeting of the Regulatory Connectivity Cluster.
As a result, the Regulatory Cluster of the Connectivity Agenda is conducting a series of virtual trainings for Member States supporting the development of the Commonwealth Good Regulatory Practice Principles (GRPs).
Please join us for this inaugural virtual training on Wednesday, June 30th at 1200 – 1330 (BST) which aims to deepen understanding of the Principles, encouraging trade and regulatory officials from across the Commonwealth to exchange information about good regulatory practices, related initiatives recently implemented, in progress or planned.
Topics to be discussed include:
This first webinar will also be an opportunity to present the objectives and content of the next three webinars to be organized in coming months dealing with the six specific Principles through case studies from Commonwealth countries implementing them across different levels of development and from different regions.
Ms Kay Sealy, Director of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Barbados
Mr Cesar Cordova, Director, Jacobs, Cordova & Associates
This event is open to member states representatives only and approved observers.
