UNCTAD - eCommerce Week 2018
E-commerce continues to grow in the global economy. According to UNCTAD's 2017 Information Economy Report, the value of global e-commerce increased to an estimated $25 trillion in 2015, up from $16 trillion in 2013. The report stresses that the world is on the cusp of a 'new' digital economy, which will have transformational impacts on the world economy, creating both opportunities and development challenges. Register here: https://goo.gl/GpzF4k UNCTAD's fourth E-Commerce Week will place particular emphasis on the role of digital platforms, a key feature of the evolving digital economy. Digital platforms - often accessed through mobile apps - bring together and aggregate demand and supply in ways that were not possible before (being faster, cheaper and more easily coordinated), including in geographical areas/service sectors traditionally neglected. Digital platforms present new opportunities for international trade and efficient economic activities, including for small businesses. However, the extent to which people and enterprises engage and benefit from such platforms varies considerably. There are indeed concerns that they will disrupt economies, with potential negative consequences for employment and working conditions. The fourth E-Commerce Week, with the theme "Development dimensions of digital platforms", will offer a venue for different stakeholders to discuss key challenges and opportunities arising from such platforms, and put forth concrete actions to harness maximum benefits for developing countries. The 2017 E-Commerce Week was attended by 1,000 representatives, from governments, international organizations, the private sector and civil society from 99 countries, with 170 speakers and moderators. More than 30 sessions addressing policy-relevant topics were organized in collaboration between UNCTAD and another 30 partners. In 2018, the UNCTAD E-Commerce Week will follow the same format, and will feature, among other events, the second session of the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on E-commerce and the Digital Economy on 18-20 April.

Launching of UNCTAD’s The Least Developed Countries Report 2016
The LDC Report 2016 subtitled The path to graduation and beyond: Making the most of the process examines the prospects of LDCs to graduate from their current status by the end of the Istanbul Programme of Action (IPoA) tenure in 2020. As may be recalled that the IPoA in 2011 had set the target to half the number of LDCs by 2020; at the mid-point since that adoption, this report evaluates the actual status of achievements, and reviews the significance, nature and process of graduation. The report highlights the need for ‘graduation with momentum’ for the countries who are to exit from the LDC category; and emphasises that structural transformation should play the fundamental role in this regard. The launching of the LDC Report 2016 is being organised by CPD as per the request of UNCTAD. You may recall that CPD has been organising the launching events of UNCTAD LDC Reports since 2006.
