E-commerce Business Toolkits: FSM, Samoa and Vanuatu

About the Project

The PIFS E-commerce Business Toolkits are simple, step-by-step, example-based, guides for a hypothetical business wishing to explore the use of online tools to sell products and services in a given industry and a given geographical context.

‘Toolkits development and accessibility’ is the first step of the PIFS E-Biz Plus: a National E-commerce Expert works together with an International E-commerce Expert and an industry reference group to develop updated and tailored Business Toolkits aimed at supporting businesses’ online transition.

Through this project, the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat produced ten Toolkits: three for Samoa, three for Vanuatu, two for the Federate States of Micronesia, and two for the Pacific Region. All the Toolkits can be accessed here.
