UNCTAD E-commerce Week 2017

24/Apr/2017 to 28/Apr/2017

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) will hold its annual E-commerce Week on 24-28 April 2017, at the Palais des Nations, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The event will be held under the overarching theme 'Towards Inclusive E-Commerce' and will feature multistakeholder discussions on key challenges and opportunities related to e-commerce. Participants will also engage in defining concrete actions towards more inclusive trade, global benefits, and sustainable development, in line with the sustainable development goald (SDGs).

The various sessions planned by UNCTAD and several other organisations will address issues such as e-commerce and development, cybersecurity and cybercrime, privacy and data protection, consumer protection, payment solutions, fintech, and broadband connectivity, among others. The highlight of the week will be represented by the high-level event on 'Digital Transformation for All: Empowering Entrepreneurs and Small Business', which will bring together ministers and other stakeholders for exchanges on how societies could adapt to the changing economic landscape brought about by the digital revolution.
