ICTSD Dialogue on Digital trade and Development. Placing the development dimension in the centre of the trade discussion. The actvity would focuss on the possible elements for a  development package in the context of e-commerce negotiations.Through the proposed dialogue, participants would be able to undertand the reasons behind the reluctance of some WTO to further engage in the area of ecommere, and identify possible solutions or alternatives to this issue.  In particular, how could a quid pro quo between obligations/commitments, and technical assistanse and capacity building operate in the field of ecommerce. In doing so, the experience under the Trade Facilitation Agreement and its "new deal" on development may be considered.

Building a collaborative global ecosystem to empower and educate SMEs through a global trusted professionalised network

GTPA: The New Global Standard in Expertise-Based Trusted Networks

This session will introduce the Global Trade Professionals Alliance, outline the mandate, organisation and aspirations of the GTPA, and link the GTPA trusted network to the professionalization of trade practice.

We will explore the GTPA as a powerful channel for the dissemination of best practices and contributions to economic inclusion and development through trade, as well as charting a path for GTPA as an important complement to the work of international organisations, trade promotion organisations, policy bodies and others working to enable trade around the globe.

The GTPA’s competency-based approach, rooted in a global ISO standard, adds a level of discipline to the development of expertise in all aspects of international trade, and in so doing, uniquely links areas like trade management, supply chain practices, legal, regulatory and compliance skills, together with trade-related financing and international development.
