MSFS 535 - Intl Trade & Econ Diplomacy
Trade Negotiations and Commercial Diplomacy (TNCD) builds practical analytical and negotiation skills for diplomacy that is aimed at influencing domestic and foreign government policy and at regulatory decisions affecting global trade and investment. Commercial diplomacy is the art of building consensus among domestic and international stakeholders when developing national policies that affect trade and when negotiating and implementing international trade agreements. 
Trade negotiations are no longer just about tariffs and quotas. Today’s interdependent world demands skills and knowledge over a wide range of governmental activity affecting international commerce –in areas such as health, safety, and environment standards; consumer protection; competition policy; bribery and corruption laws: agricultural support programs; industrial subsidies; and regulations covering services such as banking, telecommunications and accounting. 
TNCD focuses on the analysis, advocacy, and negotiating in a public policy arena. These skills are built in the context of international agreements on investment and trade -related issues: in-depth analysis of the factors that bear on the policy process at home and abroad, political advocacy tools and techniques to assure support for desired outcomes, and the skills needed to complete successful negotiations.
