International Economics (IEC), is carrying out two related but distinct activities under ARISE Plus Cambodia, this is conducting an FTA potential study and drafting a handbook on analytical preparations for trade negotiations. The main purpose of the FTA potential study is to provide needed information for the Government to prioritize potential partners for bilateral trade agreements in order to focus subsequent study work as well as government resources on those (potential) FTAs that promise to provide the largest positive impact for Cambodia. The main purpose of the handbook is to produce a user-friendly guide to existing analytical resources that can support negotiators and analysts as they prepare for and conduct bilateral trade negotiations.
