10:00 - 11:00 Opening session

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in collaboration with eTrade for all, will host its annual eCommerce Week. This event will take place in Geneva and online from 4 to 8 December 2023.

The theme for the 2023 edition is ‘Shaping the future of the digital economy’. The conference will focus on widening the digital gap and the danger that data-driven digitalization could exacerbate inequalities.

During the UNCTAD eWeek, Ministers, senior government officials, CEOs and other business leaders, international organizations, development banks, academia and civil society will come together to address three key questions:

  • What does the future we want for the digital economy look like?
  • What is required to make that future come true?
  • How can digital partnerships and enhanced cooperation contribute to more inclusive and sustainable outcomes?

Throughout the event, a particular emphasis will be placed on specific and actionable solutions in key policy areas that must be addressed to build an inclusive and sustainable digitalization at the national, regional and global levels with the involvement of all relevant stakeholders.
