International Trade Training for Journalists
In partnership with the National Press Foundation (NPF)
Media play a critical role in providing deeper perspectives on trade issues. Our 4-days training courses for media, organized by the National Press Foundation, provide deep knowledge on all aspects of international trade. The next course will be in Washington D.C.
About the course
In partnership with the National Press Foundation (NPF), we offered an International Trade Training for Journalists in Asia, a four-day workshop on all aspects of sustainable international trade.
Our journalist fellows learn from experts in foreign direct investment, treaties that shape trade, economic growth, social and environmental impacts, emerging economies, how the World Trade Organization works, China’s unique role, access to research and data, and more.
