International Trade Center (ITC)

As an outcome of the first contacts between the representatives of International Trade Centre (ITC) and IRCICA during the International meeting on Child Labour in the Sector of Crafts and the Meeting of the CIPA Consultative Committee, held in Fez, between 15-19 June, 1998; and subsequent contacts made during the meeting held in Geneva at the Headquarters of ITC on 15 July 1998, towards an active cooperation between IRCICA and ITC in the field of craft products, an agreement was signed between ITC and IRCICA in 1999 to foster cooperation for developing the trade, marketing and training aspects of the crafts of OIC Member States. This agreement paved the way for more concrete steps for future cooperation between the two bodies in common fields of concern.
