This course introduces participants to trade policy from the perspective of exporting enterprises. It covers the ways in which trade policy matters to enterprises along different stages of the value chain, as well as the ways and reasons in which TSIs influence policy making and reform processes on behalf of enterprises. This requires an understanding of the value chain of exporting enterprises and an ability to recognise the policy instruments that affect each part of the value chain.
