    Conference Theme  

    We will remember the last two years as the test of our humanity, resilience and agility.

    More than ever, small businesses are the cornerstone for prosperity, inclusiveness and sustainability. Businesses need solutions that provide information, support innovation, facilitate market access, manage risk and improve resilience.

    At the World Trade Promotion Organizations Conference 2022, we explore how bold trade and investment organizations provide solutions to help build resilience and manage risk in times of uncertainty. With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a guide, we consider how these organizations address business survival and competitiveness and support trade-led growth while serving their communities and protecting our planet.

    The first day features insights on global megatrends, followed by perspectives from business leaders. The focus moves to explore global trade and investment opportunities related to the African Continental Free Trade Area. Special sessions focus on the TPO context, dedicated to embracing risk and sustainable business practices that deliver competitive advantage. The first day ends with an awards ceremony announcing the winners of the WTPO Awards 2022. The second day is an introspection on creating resilient, agile and bold organizations that help businesses to scale up trade.
