The organisation focuses on trade and World Trade Organisation (WTO) issues.

One of its objectives is to monitor the present and future challenges facing the media.

It also supports media professionals within the Least Developed Countries and other parts of the world. It currently has a membership of 18 countries, which extend from Africa to the Caribbean and Asia.

The organisation’s cooperating partners are the WTO, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, One World Network, Taking IT Global, Thomson Foundation and the World Food Programme.

The sitting president is from Bangladesh and currently it has two vice presidents – from Mali and Zambia.

The general secretary of the organisation is from Benin while the joint secretary is from Burkina Faso.

Marawanyika has won several local awards writing on trade issues, but his greatest achievement was in 2001 when he was voted among the top seven business reporters covering issues on regional integration.

In that year he won a trip to study the European Union integration. Last year, Marawanyika covered the regional preparatory meetings before the WTO’s Ministerial Meeting in Cancun, Mexico.
