The International Trade Centre (ITC) is the technical cooperation agency of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The following statement about the ITC is taken verbatim from its website, and reflects the ITC's official view of its own functions:

"ITC enables small business export success in developing countries by providing, with partners, trade development solutions to the private sector, trade support institutions and policy-makers."

ITC works in six areas:
* Product and market development
* Development of trade support services
* Trade information
* Human resource development
* International purchasing and supply management
* Needs assessment, programme design for trade promotion

ITC’s technical assistance concentrates on the three issues for which it believes the need for national capacity-building is most critical: helping businesses understand WTO rules; strengthening enterprise competitiveness; and developing new trade promotion strategies.

Market Analysis Services and Tools

Market Analysis Services (MAS) are part of the Programme of Product and Market Development of the International Trade Centre (ITC) UNCTAD/WTO. Through MAS services, ITC provides on-line tools, disseminates market research and trade analysis, and conducts training programmes in market analysis for trade support institutions and the business community in developing countries.
