This led to sales of US$ 15 million in 2011.  Formed in 1964, ITC has been the focal point within the United Nations system for trade related technical assistance (TRTA).  In line with their joint mandate from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations through the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), they support  the parent organizations’ regulatory, research and policy strategies. They focus on implementing and delivering practical TRTA projects.

Along with the United Nations family and partner organizations, they continue to connect ITC projects and programmes with global efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and the Aid for Trade agenda. ITC remains the only international organization focused solely on trade development for developing and transition economies. To deliver effective trade-related technical assistance (TRTA) and to achieve the goal of expanding exports requires all the major players, including ITC, to develop effective working partnerships as well as greater levels of coherence and coordination. Their goal is to build on their capabilities and that of their partners to bring about even greater development impact.
