Our goal is to bring people together to build professional capabilities in trade, elevate the profile of trade, advocate the benefits and opportunities of trade, facilitate networking at a global level as well as to improve the performance and success of companies in global trade which will in turn boost the efficiency of trade processes.

It took us six years to develop the International Standard for Trade Professionals, it was no easy task to cover a profession that has such a diversity in domain specialisations cutting across everything from Trade Management to Trade Policy and Trade Finance and Supply Chain Finance. We are launching the GTPA will one field of specialisation under Trade Management, but the GTPA is seeking to further develop the various domain specialisations over the next couple of years to cover eight areas of domain specialisation with a pathway within each for career progression from a Practitioner level all the way through to Executive level.

GTPA as a platform will now provide global recognition of the competencies of trade professionals across geopolitical boundaries. Given the fact that one of the cornerstones of trade policy is to harmonise standards globally, GTPA has now set the foundation for the development of global standards in the field of trade professionalisation.

Building a standard for global trade professional under the ISO/IEC 17024 frame work provides a global pathway for employment by identifying both technically competent individuals to organisations that are driven by professional competency and vice versa. The competency framework has been compiled with rigour to facilitate a range of domain specialisations and certification levels but to also provide flexibility to account for regional, economic and cultural nuances.
