You are invited to join UNCTAD and BongoHive for the launch of the Information Economy Report 2015: Unlocking the Potential of E-commerce for Developing Countries on 24th of March 2015 at 18:00hrs.

Electronic commerce is rapidly transforming the way in which enterprises are interacting among each other as well as with consumers and Governments, and growing rapidly in developing economies. Against this background, the Information Economy Report (IER) 2015 revisits the potential opportunities and risks of e-commerce and examines how countries can benefit the most from the phenomenon in today’s information society.

The report maps recent trends, highlights innovative e-commerce solutions of relevance – especially for micro and small enterprises in developing countries – and introduces tools for comparing the e-commerce readiness of countries. It analyses the access in various parts of the world to global e-commerce platforms and services, conducts the first ever global mapping of cyberlaws in key areas of relevance to e-commerce, and makes broad recommendations for policy makers.

The report will be presented by CEO and Co-Founder of BongoHive, Lukonga Lindunda and it will be made available on the day of the launch. The launch will be followed by an interactive discussion period with all the attendees.

This event is free and open to the public. However, there is limited space available so please reserve a seat now to guarantee your attendance.
