Cancellation of eCommerce Week 2020

In light of the development of the COVID-19 virus situation, we would like to inform you that we have decided to cancel the eCommerce Week 2020.

UNCTAD's Senior Management has taken the decision that, effective immediately, all meetings involving international participants scheduled until the end of April 2020 should be postponed. This conclusion was arrived at taking into account the policy of the Swiss Government for the cancellation/postponement of events of 1,000 persons or more, the implications of prevailing limitations on international travel, and the need to minimize undue inconvenience to meeting participants.

For further information on the coronavirus, we encourage you to consult the WHO website.

Ensuring the health and safety of all participants is our primary concern. It is for this reason that we are taking the difficult decision of cancelling the eCommerce Week.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, we look forward to welcoming you in 2021 for a new edition of the eCommerce Week, and also - for those of you who are interested - in Abu Dhabi for the first Asia eCommerce Week from 6 to 10 December 2020. Further information on this exciting event will be shared in the next few weeks.

E-week 2020 

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 digital economy.

Under the theme "Creating Value in the Digital Economy", some of these underlying questions will be explored:

  • What is needed for developing countries to create and capture more value in the digital economy?

  • What are the rules of the game that governments need to formulate at the national and international level?

  • How to make women digital entrepreneurs a force of wealth creation?

Highlights of the Week will include:

A High-level Dialogue dedicated to the theme of the Week

 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’

  Thematic sessions organized by the eTrade for all partners
