International Trade Centre (ITC) is the joint agency of the World Trade Organization and the United Nations

The International Trade Centre (ITC) is the joint agency of the World Trade Organization and the United Nations. Our aim is for businesses in developing countries to become more competitive in global markets, speeding economic development and contributing to the achievement of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.

Our role in the UN and WTO

Formed in 1964, ITC has been the focal point within the United Nations system for trade related technical assistance (TRTA).

In line with our joint mandate from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations through the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), we support our parent organizations’ regulatory, research and policy strategies. We focus on implementing and delivering practical TRTA projects.
