Applications are now being accepted for the WTO’s Young Trade Leaders Program 2024, which aims to build a global network of Young Trade Leaders and improve youth awareness of the WTO’s role in international trade. The World Trade Institution (WTO) is the only worldwide organization that oversees international trade regulations between nations. Its fundamentals are WTO Agreements which are discussed, signed, and then adopted by parliaments in the majority of the trading states worldwide.

The primary objective of the WTO youth forum is to facilitate smooth and unrestricted trade flow. This WTO leadership program in Europe is a great opportunity for outstanding young people who know how trade can help people and the environment. Along with having the chance to learn about the organization’s activities and promote its objective, Young Trade Leaders will also contribute new perspectives and thoughts concerning the importance of trade and the WTO.

WTO Young Leaders Program will invite participants to attend WTO Public Forum 2024 which is a one-day in-person training program in Geneva in September 2024. Young Leaders can benefit from the current training initiatives of WTO. They will get support from the WTO for organizing trade-related activities in their home countries. Participants can get guidance and mentorship from the WTO Secretariat. Learning and getting connected to prestigious organizations like the WTO is inspired by many young leaders. If you are one of them, apply now to grab this golden chance before the deadline approaches.
