On 28 March 2019, the World Trade Organization (WTO) organized a workshop on gender in trade agreements.
The workshop examined the role for trade agreements in promoting gender equality; it analyzed how gender has been integrated in FTAs, regional integration agreements and preferential trade schemes; and discussed what has been achieved so far.  The workshop also reflected new ideas on how the inclusion of gender issues in trade agreements could be made more impactful for women.

Jaime de Melo, Scientific Director at Ferdi and Professor Emeritus of the University of Geneva participated in this workshop where he presented a paper on gender considerations in the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA)
