The GST Working Group is an online network bringing together key policymakers from developing countries who are active in trade and economic ministries, trade negotiators and representatives of gender/women’s ministries. Membership is also open to representatives of regional economic organisations, national trade promotion and finance organisations, women’s organisations, civil society and private sector groups which represent marginalised traders and are advocating  for the economic empowerment of women.  These are some of our Members!

Why should you become a member ?

Working Group members will benefit from South-South and peer learning in the framework of network events, national capacity building activities and by knowledge and best practices shared on the Working Group website and amongst members.

In addition, Working Group members may benefit from opportunities for national level capacity building on gender and trade or technical assistance addressing conceptual and methodological issues relevant to GST.
