The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) prepares for this year’s African e-Commerce Week – an eTrade-driven  initiative focused on “Empowering African economies in the digital era” and jointly organized by the African and European Union December 12-14 in Nairobi, Kenya.

Innovation continues to show worthy of more than just a conversation with increased technology solutions implementation around the globe with Africa joining in efforts to maximize e-commerce and digitization opportunities around the global trade market.

“Turning this tremendous opportunity into inclusive development requires a massive effort on the part of all of us – in Africa and beyond,” UNCTAD Secretary-General Mukhisa Kituyi said. “We are at critical juncture – and that it is why UNCTAD decided to have a meeting in Africa, for Africa and by Africa, focused on harnessing the potential of digitalization and the mobile revolution.”

With an anticipated number of guests to reach over 1,000 from 48 different countries, the conversations are aimed to bring e-commerce solutions and strategies to the forefront while expanding networking in addition to “a week-long dialogue to identify innovative ways for shaping the African digital economy.” Other topics include intra-African trade and UNCTAD’s B2C E-Commerce Index,  set to launch during the conference.

The event will offer labs, workshops and and high-level segments directly related to business collaborations in technology solutions. For more information on the event, visit: UNCTAD.org.
