    WTPO 2021 Conference Theme  

    Effective organizations are visionary and bold. They chart a path for competitive advantage for business in times of uncertainty. Boldness means having the courage to do things differently, embrace digitalization, work with new partners, diversify and take risks to deliver on long term and ambitious goals.

    At the World Trade Promotion Organization Conference 2022, we will explore how bold organizations provide solutions to help build resilience and manage risk in times of uncertainty. With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a guide, we will outline and celebrate how trade and investment organizations address business survival and competitiveness, and support trade-led growth, while serving their communities and protecting our planet.
