Background to the assignmentThe Second Trade Development Facility (TDF-2) is a multi-donor program financed by Australia, the European Union, Germany, Ireland, AUSAID and the World Bank, focusing on improving trade and private sector development in Lao PDR. The development objective of TDF-2, which is implemented by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, is to support the implementation of government’s trade and integration priorities outlined in the 2012 Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) Roadmap, and in particular to contribute to improved competitiveness and diversification, focusing on non-natural resource sectors. TDF-2 has three main components[1]: Trade facilitation, trade policy and regulations; Diversification and competitiveness; and Mainstreaming aid for trade.Under the first component of TDF-2, support will be given to the development of a “Services Trade and Investment Portal” (STIP).

The establishment of the Services Trade and Investment Portal will improve access to the legal and regulatory framework applicable to services industries. The establishment of this online information tool will complement the existing Lao Trade Portal, which offers information on trade in goods.The indicative estimated input for the position of Content Coordinator is 12 person-months on a full time basis, with a possibility for extension based on performance.
