As part of the capacity-building component of TIPS and AusAID’s SADC Trade Development Programme, TIPS between May and December 2005 undertook basic trade data training workshops in eight SADC countriesLesotho, Botswana, Swaziland, Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi, Nambia and South Africa. Officials from various ministries and export associations attended the workshops, which guided participants on how to use the SADC Trade Database effectively. To complement the training, a 47-page training manual was developed, guiding participants through ther complexities of the Beyond 20/20 database application.

Our trainers endeavoured to make these sessions as accessible as possible –

  • In the case of Mozambique, we translated our training slides into Portuguese;
  •  In Botswana, two sessions were held because of high demand from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Trade Statistics Unit.
