Forum on trade in educational services, 23-24 May 2002, Washington D.C, USA

 

An OECD Forum on Trade in Educational Services created a platform for discussion of the main issues and trends in the global trade of educational services. The forum brought together all the main stakeholders who have an active role in cross-border trade activities in education and training (post-secondary education and training institutions, private sector, students and learners, policy-makers from governments both in education and trade in services, professional associations, etc.).

The first forum took place on May 23-24 2002 in Washington, D.C. Some of the main topics addressed were:

  1. the views of all main stakeholders on the topic of trade in education;
  2. up-to-date information on the current negotiations on trade in educational services at the WTO;
  3. issues and problems with quality assurance of cross-border delivery of education and training; and
  4. illustrative case studies of e-learning activities in post-secondary education and training.
