SheTrades Global 2019
On 19 November 2019, thought-leaders will convene in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for SheTrades Global 2019 to chart the next milestone in transforming the global agenda on women and trade.
2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and two years since the launch of Buenos Aires Declaration on Trade and Women’s Economic Empowerment. Significant efforts have been made to speed up progress on women’s participation in the economy and trade. To move the needle, collaborative and innovative strategies are necessary to ensure systematic and sustainable change.
