WTO Women in Digital Trade workshop


Awalebiz Founder Nafy DIAGNE was speaker at the Workshop on “Women in Digital Trade” that took place on July 1st in Geneva. The objective was to exchange with experts on best practices and challenges on making trade policies more gender responsive. Worldwide cross border online trade increased 18 times from 2005 to 2012 and is scheduled to increase eight times going to 2025. Digital trade holds a promise of lower transaction costs, access to new markets and secure payment options. All that can provide economic opportunities for women-led businesses.

This workshop was co-hosted by the EU (European Union), with the support of the WTO (World Trade Organization), UNCTAD and the International Trade Centre (ITC),
