The 1-day Workshop for member-agencies of the Ad-Hoc Technical Working Group on PNTR (Ad-Hoc TWG-PNTR) focus on Non-Tariff Measures (NTMs) identification, classification and notification for purposes of populating the Philippine National Trade Repository (PNTR) and web-linking it to the ATR. The participants were introduced to the United Nations Centre for Trade and Development (UNCTAD) NTMs Classification. An integral part of the Workshop is the use of simulations with fictional cases to train the participants in properly classifying NTMs.

Like the previous Workshop last September 18-19, 2014, the training is part of the European Union-ASEAN Regional Integration Supported by EU (EU-ARISE) programs to assist and promote the institutionalization and operations of national trade repositories.
