About us

Launched in July 2016, during the 14th quadrennial Conference of UNCTAD, eTrade for all is a global initiative that helps developing countries engage in and benefit from e-commerce.


By using a multi-stakeholder approach, it connects the dots between beneficiary countries, partners and donors to enable more businesses and people to benefit from e-commerce.

At the heart of the initiative is the eTrade for all online platform. This new information hub helps developing countries navigate the wealth of technical and financial services they can use to drive development through e-commerce. Through the platform, countries can connect with potential partners, learn about trends and best practices, access up-to-date e-commerce data, and be informed of upcoming e-commerce events.
