This includes the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Bank, the European Union (EU) and the governments of China and the United States of America.

Understanding the impact these have organisations on trade and finance is very important to your career. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you’ll be to work for such international and national organisations.
