eTrade for all Leadership Dialogue

Connecting the dots for more inclusive development

During the 2022 edition of the eCommerce Week, the eTrade for all partners joined efforts in a Leadership Dialogue: Connecting the Dots for More Inclusive Development. This Leadership Dialogue provided a unique forum for eTrade for all leaders to reflect upon lessons learned during the first 5 years of the initiative and offer a forward-looking reflection in view of recent trends and developments.
