E-commerce for Development: Where Can Trade Deals Boost the Enabling Environment?

E-commerce holds promise for delivering new business opportunities and inclusive trade. But it has not yet lifted all boats. This session will explore the extent to which the trade policy community can contribute to improving the enabling environment for cross-border e-commerce and, as a priority, ensuring this works for development and small business. Participants will discuss what specific issues — from electronic payments to logistics — would most benefit from trade policy interventions as well as where public-private collaboration can help.
