It is also linked with the implementation of WTO related legislation at the local level as well as with the development of an administrative appeals system required by a number of WTO agreements and core obligations such as national treatment by both the central and local governments. A particular emphasis of this component is enforcement of intellectual property rights in cooperation with judicial and enforcement authorities. This component also deals with Government procurement issues.
