Practices on e-commerce, TrainForTrade case studies in South-East Asia
Practices on e-commerce webinar, to present the latest publication of TrainForTrade case studies in South-East Asia.

In responding to the demand from South-East Asia countries, UNCTAD/TrainForTrade team has implemented an innovative, well-targeted e-commerce training project, which is called “Leapfrogging skills development in e-commerce in South-East Asia in the Framework of the 2030 Development Agenda”. 260 candidates from the public and private sectors from the region have successfully participated in this project that encompasses six in-depth online training modules on e-commerce and e-business fundamentals, e-government, payment, transportation and logistics, digital marketing, and marketplaces, as well as a face-to-face workshop in the region and policy analysis recommendations with practical national cases.

Skills development in e-commerce has become more important than ever before because it is a key to accelerating economic transformation, job creation and sustainable development. As shown in many countries’ efforts to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, e-commerce has played a crucial role in meeting people’s essential needs.

This publication provides efficient and practical proposals for governments and private sector actors in the areas of e-commerce and digital economy to set up enabling policies, exchange best practices, and improve economic and human development performance in a sustainable fashion.

The selected case studies were done as part of the UNCTAD TrainForTrade project Leapfrogging skills development in e-commerce in South-East Asia, (https://tft.unctad.org/projects/trainfortrade-project-in-south-east-asia/) funded by the United Nations Development Account.

During the webinar, M. Mark Assaf, UNCTAD, will present the project; Dr. Walace Shuaihua Cheng, international consultant, will present the overview of the publication; Dr. Mary Rose A. Contreras, Deputy Director, Payment System Oversight Department, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, will present the role of the central bank in developing the e-payment system (case study 5 of the publication); and M. Yoga Sangkan Prasetya, Officer, Centre for International Affairs, Ministry of Communications and Informatics, Indonesia, will present the role of the Government in addressing logistic challenges in the e-commerce boom (case study 4 of the publication). The questions and answers period will be moderated by Dominique Chantrel, UNCTAD.
