E-commerce is fast becoming the most significant channel for international trade and one that offers the potential for renewed economic growth in developing and least developed countries.
Doing business digitally will be essential in the new era: unfortunately small businesses from these countries are often excluded from e-commerce due to the limited availability of international payment solutions, affordable and reliable logistics services and suitable technologies, on top of legal and regulatory barriers, insufficient skills and a lack of financial support.
The ecomConnect programme aims to build the world's largest community of e-commerce entrepreneurs engaged in the sustainable development of small businesses online by facilitating shared learning, innovative solutions, collaboration and partnerships.
