Before that, he was the deputy director in the same section. He spent five years working on WTO matters, focusing on the agricultural and NAMA negotiations in the Doha Development Agenda (DDA). Trana is a career foreign service officer who has served in Riyadh and Washington. He received his M.A. in economics from the University of Oslo.
