Trade negotiations

The diploma also offers a detailed overview of the commitments in terms of disciplines and trade and investment liberalization that Mexico and its trading partners have acquired through different multilateral, regional and bilateral legal instruments.

It also includes practical aspects of international trade where the procedures for the import and export of goods, control measures and trade defense alternatives will be addressed.

For this reason, the new circumstances in the international economy demand professionals who are fully familiar with the existing agreements, including those in which Mexico does not participate, and the specific issues that support them.

The program provides its participants with the tools to be part of this renewed activity in commercial diplomacy, either as public officials or defending the interests of their constituents – government agencies, companies, consultancies, chambers and business confederations – by participating in the negotiation of new agreements.

Likewise, the Diploma makes available to students the elements to understand the administration of existing agreements and those that are coming into force, and shows how to participate in cases of commercial and investment differences that arise from the application of these agreements.

The next course on trade negotiations will be held from October 29, 2021 to October 1, 2022, it will be taught in its entirety virtually and will be offered by videoconference on Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. 14:00 hours.
