To deliver trade impact for good, the CRT depends on a network of TSI's that are both associates of the CRT's work and implementing partners, providing services to enhance the international competitiveness of traders and SME's alike.
We understand how policy and regulatory choices have a significant impact on SME competitiveness and play a crucial role in determining whether SMEs are able to link to value chains.
Accreditation through our education programme is perhaps the single most important area of the CRT's work. Providing individuals the knowledge, tools and professional principles to ensure they reach our standards underpin our efforts to ensure we support the development of international business.
The CRT structure is designed to make life simple for those involved within our organisation which in turn makes it easier for other partner organisations to communicate and collaborate with us.
The Consultative Committee of the Commission Trust Fund (CCCTF) reviews the use of funds made available through the Commission Trust Fund in consultation with the CRT Secretariat and referencingCRT's strategic documents. It will make recommendations to the General Assembly for future use of CRT funds, as deemed appropriate.
The CRT as a non-governmental organization (NGO) we are in a powerful position to leverage ourselves as an independent organisation impartial and not bound to the regulations of other groups.
When anyone asks us what exactly the CRT is and how do we work, the answer is pretty straight forward, we are here to provide a system to ensure individual traders within international business are provided with all the tools they require to truly succeed.
