The WTO Accessions Internship Programme aims to help young professionals from least-developed countries (LDCs) and developing countries increase their understanding of the WTO and of trade law, international economics and international relations in general.
About The World Trade Organization (WTO) (http://www.wto.org/index.htm)
The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the only global international organization dealing with the rules of trade between nations. At its heart are the WTO agreements, negotiated and signed by the bulk of the world's trading nations and ratified in their parliaments.
About the internship
The WTO Accessions Internship Programme is part of China's LDCs and Accessions Programme known as the -China Programme- which was established by the Government of China under a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the WTO on 14 July 2011. The China Programme aims to strengthen LDCs' participation in the WTO and to assist acceding LDCs in joining the WTO
Who can apply
Only those candidates can apply who:
  1. are available for full time (in-office) internship
  2. are available for duration of 6 months
  3. have relevant skills and interests
Other requirements
  1. The interns must be: 1) nationals of LDCs or developing countries that are already WTO members; or 2) nationals of countries or customs territories engaged in the WTO accession process. Interns who are nationals of WTO members work in the Accessions Division while nationals of acceding countries or customs territories work in other divisions of the WTO.
Additional Information
Applications are accepted round the year. The earlier you apply, the better.
Interns receive a daily allowance of CHF 60 (including weekends and official holidays that occur within the selected periods).  In addition, travel expenses (economy class air fare) to and from Geneva are covered by the WTO.

Save yourself from fraud!

If an employer asks you to pay any security deposit, registration fee, laptop fee, etc., do not pay and notify us immediately. Remember, Internshala doesn't charge a fee from the students to apply to an internship & we don't allow other companies to do so either.
