Building research capacity in Asia and the Pacific

As many of the countries in the Asia-Pacific region have yet to evolve trade-related research programmes, ARTNeT strives to build research capacity in the region, particularly in least developed countries. This is done through implementation of regional team-based research studies, research grants to junior researchers from least developed countries (LDC), organization of technical training workshops for trade research, and visiting fellowships to non-LDC institutions.

ARTNeT holds workshops to increase understanding on relevant policy issues and empirical tools for trade analysis. Moreover, ARTNeT builds and supports new datasets and research tools. Since 2005, more than 60 workshops have been held with more than 1500 individuals having received training. In collaboration with the WTO research division and various other partners, ARTNeT has held 9 research capacity building workshops that also involved post-workshop mentoring and resulted in successful “learning by doing” and published research outputs including through post-workshop grants.
