What is there for women entrepreneurs in this year's WTO Public Forum?
The WTO Public Forum 2023 will begin on 12 September. This annual event, renowned for fostering open dialogue and promoting multilateral cooperation, will bring together policymakers, industry leaders, academics, civil society representatives, and other stakeholders from around the globe.
Against the backdrop of a rapidly evolving global landscape, the 2023 WTO Public Forum promises insightful discussions and collaborative initiatives aimed at charting the course for inclusive and sustainable trade solutions. Under the theme “It is time for action” this year's Public Forum will delve into the critical intersections between trade and climate change.
The 2023 Public Forum will explore how trade and the WTO can help create a greener and more sustainable future. In particular, it will explore how the services sector, digitalization and inclusive trade policies can support this objective.
These discussions are particularly relevant as the world faces unprecedented challenges that demand innovative strategies and collective action. As technology reshapes industries, and as climate concerns gain urgency, the Forum will explore the role of trade in fostering resilience and facilitating equitable development.
