E-Commerce Assessments for Forum Island Countries

About the Project

When establishing the Pacific E-commerce Initiative, Forum Island Countries concurred on the need to lay solid analytical foundations as a precondition to undertake truly transformative actions on E-commerce. The UNCTAD E-Trade Readiness methodology was selected as the template to assess digital transformation challenges and opportunities. Based on this methodology, assessments are being undertaken in all members countries who express an interest to be assessed.
