Throughout the 8-module training with the Philippine Global Trade E-learning Program (PGTEP), I completed all the course activities and tests on-line, shared insights with the group of scholars, mostly officials of the Philippine Government, on various issues that I think stemmed from the misunderstanding of the nature of international trade on one hand and international trade policy on the other. The 8-module training on International Trade Law and Policy was a scholarship grant hosted by Earth Council Geneva, United States Assistance for International Development (USAID), Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, Department of Trade and Industry, Philippines. The foregoing are just some of those insights.
