The Picker Center collaborated with the World Bank to jointly develop and offer a state-of-the-art, comprehensive, fee-based course titled “Trade Policy for Development Executive Course.” In the 21st century, deepening trade has become a prominent feature of the international landscape. As interdependence among nations has grown, it has created new and complex public policy challenges that can only be addressed by highly skilled, well-informed policymakers. This program takes place every year.
