International Trade Forum

The International Trade Forum is the magazine of the International Trade Centre (ITC). It focuses on trade promotion and export development, as part of ITC’s technical cooperation programme with developing countries and economies in transition. The magazine is published quarterly since 1964 in English, French and Spanish.


Fifty years of promoting trade and development

When the International Trade Centre (ITC) was founded in 1964, its flagship publication, the International Trade Forum, was also launched. Since then, the magazine has been a leading advocate of trade promotion, providing data and information on best practices, including articles from trade experts and ministers. Published in three languages every quarter, Trade Forum is a platform for sharing ideas about trade and development, as well as providing a behind-the-scenes look at ITC’s technical-cooperation programmes in developing countries and economies in transition. Over the years, Trade Forum has built up a wide readership across the world, reaching trade support institutions, enterprises, governments and academia. Here we have a look back at the evolving design and focus of the magazine since its debut in 1964.
