Experts in Trade and Private Sector Policy and Development

About Us

Our Team
CTA has a small team of project managers who are all experienced trade experts who undertake trade consultancy in their own right. This differs from other consultancy companies who have general project managers; CTA project managers understand the technical issues and problems as well as the managerial aspects. Combined with this, being a specialist company, only undertaking trade related assignments, we are able to maintain a reputation for quality and quality control which cannot be offered by others.



Project Based Consultants

The Key to a successful project is the assembly and management of a good consultancy team. Working closely with CTA project Managers, we identify and assemble specialist teams of consultants from our database of trade experts.

Our Philosophy is to be open and transparent with our consultants, treating them with respect, understanding and communicating on the same technical level. In working closely, we operate at a personal level so that experts work with, not for us.

We are always looking to expand our network of experts and welcome new CVs from experts wishing to undertake, long, medium and short term assignments. Send your CV to
