SUMMARY

This week, "Senior government representatives are at the United Nations for the High-level Political Forum tracking progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), two years after they were adopted. Underscoring the importance of information and communication technologies (ICT) in today's world, the heads of over 20 United Nations agencies and offices have called for leveraging those technologies to “fast forward” implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In a new report, the senior officials also highlighted the critical link between information and communication technologies and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)".

On E-commerce, during the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Consumer Protection Law and Policy (IGE), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) announced the development of the World Consumer Protection Map to provide relevant information about consumer protection worldwide and to enable better coordination channels between Consumer Protection Agencies globally. Also, according to UNCTAD's e-commerce index,"Africa is trailing far behind in terms of readiness to engage in and benefit from e-commerce". In addition, The biennial “Global Review of Aid for Trade” kicked off on Tuesday 11 July at WTO headquarters, with the heads of multiple international agencies calling for greater efforts to improve digital connectivity, lower trade costs, and improve infrastructure through the Aid for Trade initiative.
