This project was part of the Trade Com II Programme, and International Economics, in consortium with Cardno Emerging Markets Belgium, contributed to sustainable economic development and poverty reduction in the PIF countries through closer regional economic integration and increased participation in the global economy.

The project had two main purposes; firstly at the regional level the objective was to support the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat’s trade mainstreaming agenda of the PACPS through the effective use of the National Trade Policy Frameworks. At the national level, the project aimed to support the Government of Niue to implement its National TPF.
