The evolving landscape of digital trade in services

This session of the Multi-year Expert Meeting on Trade, Services and Development will focus on the impact of digitalization on trade in services. It will provide an opportunity for experts to exchange views on how digitalization could be a game changer in the participation of developing countries in trade in services and to share experiences in linking digital services trade to economic diversification.

An informal working group will be formed to meet on the margins of sessions of the multi-year expert meeting; the objective is for services experts and representatives of national statistical bureaus, along with other relevant stakeholders, to exchange views and identify key challenges with regard to the collection and use of data.
