  • ITC at the WTO Public Forum 2017

     26 Sept 2017  


    E-commerce is a prominent theme at the WTO Public Forum 2017, with a number of sessions focusing on e-commerce and digital economy. ITC is launching a new e-commerce report based on a survey covering more than 2,200 respondents. The survey aims to identify the obstacles that enterprises especially MSMEs face when they engage in e-commerce and provide business perspective in the policy discussions on ecommerce.


    ITC is invited to speak in a number of sessions at the WTO Public Forum including: "Building an Intelligent Tech and Trade Initiative - ITTI Augmented Intelligence and the future of global trade“, "Automation, work and role of trade in services: understanding transformations, exploring opportunities – can trade policy help?”, “Learning to trade globally: what should SMEs know?” and “Next generation of trade: theory and policy framework of international e-trade”.


    ITC actively works to bridge the digital divide by assisting partner countries in developing home grown e-Strategies which combine robust and insightful analytical expertise with our pragmatic, action-oriented trade strategy design methodology. ITC e-Strategy solutions aim to bring partner countries onto the e-highway and deliver impact by upgrading existing value chains, enhancing competitiveness and addressing developmental concerns in order to maximize each sectors contributions to broad-based socio-economic development.
