eCommerce Week 2022

April 25
– April 29
Geneva
Online
UNCTAD

To be organized by UNCTAD in collaboration with eTrade for all and other partners simultaneously in Geneva and online, the eCommerce Week will look at ways to strengthen the ability of developing countries, including least developed countries (LDCs), to continue engaging in and benefiting from e-commerce and the digital economy, to build more resilient and inclusive societies, in a dramatically different post-COVID environment.

Under the theme Data and Digitalization for Development, the 2022 edition will put special emphasis on data and cross-border data flows and the crucial role they play in economic and social development. Reflecting on the wide differences that exist between and within countries to harness data, the connectivity-related digital divide is being heightened by what can be called a data divide. Countries with limited capacities to turn data into digital intelligence and business opportunities, and use them for economic and social development, are at a clear disadvantage.

The eCommerce Week2022 will also shine a light on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted digital transformations globally.

A not-to-be-missed event – now held simultaneously in Geneva and online

To reach out to a wider audience, and to adapt to a new reality and maximize flexibility, the eCommerce Week2022 will take on a hybrid format through a combination of physical and virtual events.

As the leading global forum for decision-makers, experts, leaders and key stakeholders from all backgrounds, including the private sector and civil society the eCommerce Week2022 will offer a unique platform to :

  • discuss ways to reframe and broaden the international policy debate on harnessing cross-border flows of digital data through the development lens
  • hear from leading partners and stakeholders about the critical challenges to harness data for value creation in the digital economy
  • learn more about a whole-of-society approach to the digital transformation.

Throughout the week, special emphasis will be given to concrete and actionable solutions to pressing issues related to the digital transformation of our economies.
