UNCTAD eCommerce Week 2022: Data and Digitalization for Development

Data regulation: Implications for the digitization of the economy and development

Organized by South Centre

27 April 2022, 5-6.00 PM (CET)


Digital data is of essence for e-commerce and development. How data is normatively characterized and governed is key to define e-commerce and broader digitization policies. The determination of whether data is owned under new or existing rights (such as intellectual property), subject to sovereign rights, or a public good may have key implications for data governance and the digitization of the economy. The session will discuss these issues from the perspective of developing countries, including how to develop frameworks that promote equity and support development.

The eCommerce Week will take place simultaneously in Geneva and online from 25 to 29 April 2022, organized by UNCTAD in collaboration with eTrade for all and other partners.

It will look at ways to strengthen the ability of developing countries, including least developed countries (LDCs), to continue engaging in and benefiting from e-commerce and the digital economy, to build more resilient and inclusive societies in a dramatically different post-COVID-19 environment.

The event is free of charge and open to all but participants must register in advance. Click here to register and find more information.
