The eTrade for all Initiative, launched at the fourteenth Ministerial Conference of UNCTAD in July 2016, is a practical example of how to harness the digital economy in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, notably Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 5, 8, 9, and 17. The initiative seeks to raise awareness, enhance synergies, and increase the scale of existing and new efforts by the development community to strengthen the ability of developing countries to engage in and benefit from e-commerce by addressing seven relevant policy areas :

  • E-commerce readiness assessment and strategy formulation
  • ICT infrastructure and services
  • Trade logistics and trade facilitation
  • Payment solutions
  • Legal and regulatory frameworks
  • E-commerce skills development
  • Access to financing
