Welcome to our June Newsletter

Dear all,

Welcome to the June edition of the newsletter. Yet again a very busy month for our partners, with high-impact activities on their agendas. Many of us followed the MC12 marathon which yielded solid grounds and new hopes for revamped multilateralism. Check out our digest here below.

We will also share the Outcome Report of the UNCTAD eCommerce Week, the largest ever. Don’t miss the highlights of the sessions and the links to the recordings. The data governance journey has just started.

The UN also celebrated the World MSME Day on 27 June. More than ever, we have witnessed the crucial role that small and medium enterprises have been playing in the global economy and the heavy toll some of them have been paying during the recent shocks.

We will also let you discover the outcome of ITU’s World Telecommunication Development Conference, which just closed its doors with the adoption of the Kigali Plan of Action, an ambitious plan to reduce the connectivity gap.

Lastly, UNCTAD also launched its Kenya eTrade Readiness Assessment, which will pave the way for an E-Commerce Strategy. Learn more here.

Against this background, your newsletter will take its customary summer break and will be back at the end of August with its Summer edition.

Enjoy the reading & continue to stay safe!
