eTrade for all: Unlocking the potential of e-commerce in developing countries
  

 

E-commerce can become a powerful driver of economic growth, inclusive trade and job-creation across the developing world.

While some developing countries have made significant inroads into e-commerce, the vast majority is still lagging behind.

Numerous development partners, foundations, and private sector actors are working from different angles to unlock the power of the Internet for economic development. However, current efforts are fragmented and lack sufficient scale.

The UNCTAD-led initiative entitled "eTrade for all" aims to improve the ability of developing countries, and particularly Least developed countries, to use and benefit from e-commerce.
