Overview :

The International Trade Centre (ITC) is the joint agency of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations (UN). ITC's mission is to foster inclusive and sustainable growth and development through trade and international business development. ITC will be implementing the project “Strengthening the agriculture and agri-food value chain and improving trade policy in Iraq” between 2020 and 2025. ITC’s Trade Policy is currently implementing activities under “ER4: Iraq’s trade policy is improved for enhanced performance and value chain competitiveness”. 

All or most of these activities will be implemented in close coordination with the Ministry of Trade (MoT). The MoT is the focal point for Iraq’s WTO Accession and the Ministry is currently focusing on undertaking many economic reforms that will ultimately contribute to the process of WTO Accession.

In this regard, Trade in Services has been identified by stakeholders as a key area of support. In order to facilitate this support, a series of workshops have been undertaken to increase the understanding of the stakeholders on Trade in Services, GATS, Services Domestic Regulation and Developing schedules for services offer.

As a follow up to this support it has been decided to undertake a regulatory assessment for key services sectors such as insurance and telecom.

In order to under the regulatory assessments as mentioned above,  ITC will hire an International Consultant (IC) and a National Legal Consultant (NC) to undertake the regulatory assessment for the two sectors in Iraq.

These ToRs cover the work to be undertaken by the NC for which ITC is recruiting a law/consultancy firm in Iraq (hereafter referred to as the ‘Consultant’) to support ITC and the IC.

The Consultant will work under the overall supervision of the Senior Officer, Business and Trade Policy and the Associate Programme Officer, Trade Facilitation and Policy for Business (TFPB) section.

To apply, please register your details on the ITC Consultants Roster and contact Ms. Devika Rajeev by e-mail with a copy of your CV notifying them of your interest and stating “NC for regulatory assessment” as the subject line.”
