Welcome to May 2019 edition of the eTrade for all newsletter

Welcome to the May edition of our eTrade for all newsletter.

Another busy month for our partners, with so many events and the release of so many relevant publications! In this number, we will take you to the United Nations Commission on Science, Technology and Development, better know as CSTD, which just closed its doors here at the Palais. We will then share a few highlights from the Consumers International Summit 2019, the Spring Meetings, as well as an update from our Pan-African Community on Trade, which organized a well-attended breakfast consultation at the Transform Africa Summit in Kigali. And last but not least, check out the Principles from the Future Policy Paper prepared by the E-Commerce Forum Africa, one of our key partners for the Africa eCommerce Week.
