The consultations will involve senior officials and members of the Ghana National Steering Committee on E-commerce and Digital Trade, as well as relevant stakeholders from the private sector, civil society and academia. 

The development of the Ghana E-commerce Strategy takes place under the UN Joint SDG Fund Digital Transformation Window 2023, in partnership with the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), coordinated by the UN Resident Coordinator Office (UNRCO).
