The UNCTAD Empowerment Programme includes e-coaching courses, featuring a module on Effective Communication that offers theoretical and practical content, along with valuable tips and advice on delivering impactful speeches and presentations, thus enhancing the communication skills of the members of the National Trade Facilitation Committees (NTFC).

In Autumn 2023, the second edition of the course was delivered to selected English-speaking countries participating in UNCTAD's 'Accelerate Trade Facilitation' project, an initiative supported by the United Kingdom. To demonstrate the knowledge acquired during the course, participants are required to create a video presentation on trade facilitation topics.
