DepHUB at UNCTAD e-Week 2024


DepHUB participates at UNCTAD e-Week, 2023: Shaping the future of the digital economy

In collaboration with a number of organisations, the DepHUB's Shamira Ahmed participated at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) E-Week, hosted in Geneva and online from 4 to 8 December 2023.

The theme for the 2023 edition, ‘Shaping the future of the digital economy’, was addressed through the focus on three 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?

The two sessions were:

"Shaping the Future: Harnessing E-commerce for Sustainable Development in the ECOWAS Region", based on the ECOWAS E-commerce Strategy.

"Rethinking Africa’s Digital Trade: Entrepreneurship, Innovation, & Value Creation in the Age of Generative AI",
