The WTO e-Learning programme is a dedicated online portal offering training courses on the WTO Agreements and matters related to international trade. Our principal mission is to help developing countries who are Members and Observers of the WTO build their trade-related capacity to participate more effectively in global trade.

While our courses are primarily geared towards government officials from developing countries, least-developed countries, and countries in the process of joining the WTO, they are also available on a self-study basis to anyone interested in learning about the WTO and what it stands for.
