The National Foreign Trade Council Foundation’s Global Innovation Forum hosted a working breakfast on the sidelines of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) Ministerial to exchange views between government officials and business leaders to discuss the role of digital trade and e-commerce in supporting small business growth and resilience.

This event celebrated the release of a new report from the Global Innovation Forum that highlights the importance of digital tools for bolstering small business success, and how governments can maximize the benefits of digitally-enabled trade for entrepreneurs in the region.

The Global Innovation Forum moderated a discussion among invited government officials, small businesses and select global technology companies. The conversation was a unique opportunity for policymakers to hear directly from entrepreneurs about the challenges and opportunities they face in global trade and how the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework can empower small businesses.
