The TRTA-II programme has three complementary components:

  • Component 1: Trade Policy Capacity Building
  • Component 2: Export development through improvement of the quality infrastructure
  • Component 3: Strengthening of the Intellectual Property Rights

aimed at improving the trade and investment policy climate and enhancing trade development, strengthening standards and quality capacity, and improving the protection of intellectual property rights.

The programme was extended by the EU Delegation and the GoP in May 2014 for 2 years with additional funding.

The overarching goal of this extension would be economic growth, employment creation and regional trade. The goal stems directly from the current needs of the Country and is also in line with the broader EU cooperation strategy. This addendum to the original cooperation agreement now incorporates the structure of this extension programme.

The extended period will be spent to (i) bring to conclusion some activities, to (ii) deepen some of the flagship initiatives, for consolidation and up-scaling and to (iii) develop pilot initiatives to complement the design of the cooperation strategy of EU in the Country beyond this period.

In connection with the pilot initiatives the extended phase will include three additional activities:

  • Business Environment Improvement and Support to the Competition Commission of Pakistan
  • Global Value Chain Analysis for Competitiveness.
  • Regional Trade in South Asia
