Digital innovations are transforming the global economy. The decline in search and information costs, rapid growth of new products and markets, and emergence of new players ushered in by digital technologies have the promise of boosting global trade flows, including exports from developing countries. At the same time, digital technologies are also threatening privacy and security worldwide, while developing countries that lack the tools to compete in the new digital environment are in danger of being left even further behind. This webinar will examine what the rapid adoption of digital technologies will mean for trade and development and the role that domestic policies and international cooperation can play in creating a more prosperous and inclusive future. The event will bring together several co-authors of the book Adapting to the Digital Trade Era: Challenges and Opportunities, edited by former JVI Board member Maarten Smeets, and published under the aegis of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Chairs Program.


The webinar will be held in English, with simultaneous translation into Russian.
