As we have entered a New Year with hope and excitement, the CUTS Centre for International Trade, Economics & Environment wish to thank you for opportunities of working together.

In 2014, while following our mission of ‘Pursuing economic equity and social justice within and across borders by persuading governments and empowering people’, the Centre strived to consolidate its activities on WTO Issues & Preferential Trade Agreements, Regional Economic Cooperation in South Asia and Linkages between Trade and Sustainable Development.
