Reference Centre managers meet in Geneva to share experiences
The first Reference Centre Symposium was held at the WTO Headquarters from 18 to 21 April 2011. The Reference Centre coordinators from the least developed countries and the countries without any representation in Geneva were able to meet for the first time. The Symposium aimed at providing the Reference Centre Managers with the knowledge and tools necessary to run a Reference Centre. Training sessions included skills in managing, searching and using WTO information resources, including publications, official documents, databases, and distance learning programmes.
