The World Export Development Forum (WEDF) is the annual flagship event of the International Trade Centre (ITC). This year's event, hosted by the Government of Mongolia, marks the 20th edition of WEDF. The conference gathers participants from around the world to talk trade, do business and drive development. It is a unique opportunity to bring together the voice of small business, women, young entrepreneurs, policymakers, and international organizations.
This year’s conference explores trade-led solutions to challenges caused by conflict, climate, COVID and rising costs. The theme, `Diversify with Green Trade`, explores organic, digital and sustainable solutions to multiple crises. WEDF is a global conference, bringing insights and good practices from across the globe.
The World Export Development Forum also provides a unique opportunity for companies to engage in valuable business-to-business (B2B) meetings, focused on Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Natural Fibres, and Leather sectors. The emphasis on organic, digital, and sustainable solutions reflects the growing global awareness and commitment towards environmentally-friendly practices. By engaging in B2B meetings centered around these sectors, companies can showcase their green commitments, explore green and digital trade opportunities, and contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable future.
