UNCTAD

UNCTAD supports developing countries to access the benefits of a globalized economy more fairly and effectively. And we help equip them to deal with the potential drawbacks of greater economic integration. To do this, we provide analysis, facilitate consensus-building, and offer technical assistance. This helps them to use trade, investment, finance, and technology as vehicles for inclusive and sustainable development.

Creative Industries and Trade Digitization Forum: Day 1

The Creative Industries and Trade Digitization Forum looked at the major trends and impacts of this step-change on the creative economy and analyses how to harness the benefits for development and trade purposes while offsetting the challenges.
