13th World Trade Promotion Organizations Conference

20:20 VISION: IT TAKES A BOLD TYPE

Trade and investment promotion organizations will be important actors in the new decade – a period when the balance between people, planet and prosperity will gain importance. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)) provide a framework for action over the next 10 years. More than ever, businesses need solutions that provide information, support innovation, facilitate market access, manage risk and improve resilience.

To manage through the turbulence and uncertainty, and to offer the best solutions to business, Tl POs will themselves need to be resilient, innovative and agile. Moreover, they need to be bold – being good enough is not enough. A bold TlPO creates a competitive advantage for the firms they serve. WTPO 2020 will explore how TlPOs can build their own resilience in times of uncertainty and change.

It will match experts and practitioners to share insights and examples of bold TlPOs supporting and improving MSME competitiveness and survival, while serving communities and saving the planet.
