Key Issues

UNCTAD's eCommerce Week is the leading forum for Ministers, senior government officials, CEOs and other business representatives, international organizations, development banks, academics and civil society to discuss the development opportunities and challenges associated with the evolving digital economy.

Unfortunately, in light of the COVID19 pandemic, UNCTAD had to take the difficult decision to cancel the eCommerce Week scheduled to take place late April.

However, in these times where digital technologies are growing more and more important considering that so many countries are experiencing some forms of lockdown because of the pandemic, and that several activities (social and business related) are shifting online, we have decided to offer that opportunity also to the eCommerce Week’s multi-stakeholder community, in collaboration with the eTrade for all partners.

Therefore, throughout the scheduled eCommerce Week (27 April- 01 May), a selected number of online events (dialogues, webinars, meetings) will take place and will be open to all to participate.

The fourth session of the Intergovernmental Group of Experts (IGE) on E-Commerce and the Digital Economy (29 April- 1 May 2020), entitled: ‘Digital platforms and value creation in developing countries: Implications for national and international policies’ is postponed until further notice.
