2.1.Establishment of the Expert Group on Investment (April June, 2009)
At the 10th meeting of the Consultative Commission and the 2nd GTI Investment Forum held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (March 2009), the member countries of GTI agreed to establish the Expert Group concerning Investment systems in GTI region. Through the close joint study and further researches about investment environment of each country, GTI member countries can examine the present condition of investment, and indicate the future direction for the mutual prosperity of member countries.
I coordinated the follow ups with each national coordinator from the member countries to establish the Expert Group in order to study and compare legislations and regulations concerning investment of each member country and produce recommendations to improve investment conditions.
2.2. Establishment of the Trade Facilitation Committee (April June, 2009)
At the 10th meeting of the Consultative Commission held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (March 2009), the member countries of GTI and UNDP, they agreed to establish the Trade Facilitation Committee (TFC) with the purposes of technical procedural facilitation of regional trade among the GTI countries. TFC shall serve as an advisory committee to governments of the GTI member countries and the Consultative Commission in the sphere of the interregional trade activities, so that the GTI countries enable to improve and facilitate trade grey-barriers effectively. TFC shall be established to contribute to the trade facilitation and removing grey-barriers within the GTI countries in order to increase competitiveness and reduce risks through betterment of the current trade environment.
I prepared the documents including Terms of Reference (TOR), and did research about the trade/investment condition in each country.
3. Preparation of Forum
5th Northeast Asia Economic Cooperation Forum and Expo will be held
I prepared the invitation of participants/ guests and related documents/ materials and organized programs accordingly. And I helped to coordinate the efforts made to research, identify, contact and communicate with the potential participants of the forums from the five member countries and around the world. In particular my perseverance, organization, patience and ability to communicate clearly and effectively played a role in the preparation of the forum and in gathering more information for the secretariat’s further reference.
The most valuable lesson was the fact that I could learn the UN system and the atmosphere how people work and harmonize in an international organization. Besides, I could have good experiences to be very instrumental in liaising with the member governments and related organizations in organizing activities for the implementation of the approved work plans and projects. In particular, research tasks were helpful to raise the skills and broaden perspectives, so that I could examine the complex phenomenon of the globalized world, and participate in the contribution to the growth of new international systems and institutional frameworks, which can promote the dynamics and create the international cooperation aligning with MDGs on a global and collective level.
Through my enthusiasm, ability to learn and willingness to accept responsibility, the tasks I have taken were accomplished efficiently and effectively. Throughout my Internship at the UNDP Tumen Secretariat, I think I had proved myself to be a very hard-working, talented, reliable and motivated employee.
