Joined by diplomats and government officials, the seminar provided businesspeople with a good opportunity to learn how general citizens and NGO representatives can approach governments reflecting their inputs into negotiations on international trade rules, such as WTO rules.

Understanding international trade rules is a must when conducting global business, and the seminar allowed experts in human resources development and international businesspeople to establish a network for follow-up exchanges of information.

Other ASEAN members (Singapore and Vietnam) and South Korea also participated in the seminar through distance learning facilities. The seminar contributed to the planning of subsequent pilot seminars to be held in Lima (South America) and Beijing (China).
