eTrade for all newsletter – September 2020

Dear All,

After a few months of adapting to the new normal imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are starting to witness the first attempts at assessing impacts and changes brought about by the pandemic.

Findings from a consumer behavior survey conducted by UNCTAD and partners across 9 emerging and developed economies, show that changes in behaviour observed during COVID-19 are likely to have lasting effects. Register to the upcoming webinar on 9 October to deep-dive into the matter and ask your questions!

Many SMEs are at risk of shutting down, but the digital transformation of businesses may slow down the process and offer new opportunities. ITC in its recent ITC SME competitiveness outlook, suggests a 15-point plan of action for a resilient, digital, inclusive and sustainable future.

Discussions on future, the COVID-19 and to some extent the digital, have also been at the core of the United Nations General Assembly discussions this year. According to our partners DiploFoundation/GIP more than 79 statements made reference to the increased use of digital technologies and the digital transformation.

And, before we wish you a happy reading, remember to continue visiting our online repository of COVID-19 resources, with weekly updates. More than 200 resources are already available for you.

Stay tuned stay safe!
