Cross-border e-commerce has opened up a new way to connect producers and merchants directly to customers around the world. In 2013, global business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce sales totalled US$ 1.2 trillion; by the end of 2018, sales have nearly doubled, reaching an estimated US$ 2.4 trillion.ITC actively supports SMEs in developing countries and least developed countries to acquire the necessary skills and capabilities to trade through e-commerce channels. To do this, the team has developed and piloted a series of training programmes, digital solutions, and advisory services that help SMEs overcome the barriers they currently face. Taken together, these initiatives provide “E-solutions” to the challenges of conducting international trade through digital channels.
The E-Solutions programme helps businesses successfully participate in digital trade by acquiring the necessary capabilities that are not readily accessible, affordable or understood by smaller enterprises in developing or least developed countries.
e-Strategies build on ITC’s extensive analytical work on e-commerce by augmenting traditional sector strategies with a an e-commerce survey which allows stakeholders to assess the sector’s readiness for e-commerce.
Virtual Market Places (VMP) project This project strengthens the skills of SMEs in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to effectively use new technologies to enhance their visibility on international markets and increase their business and market share.
