Mittal leads WTO trade dialogue on e-commerce
New Delhi: Bharti Enterprise and ICC Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal, along with incoming ICC Chairman Paul Polman and new ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton AO, led business delegation for trade dialogue held at Word Trade Organisation headquarters. "Led by ICC Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal...business delegates discussed a range of ideas to enhance the contribution of global trade to inclusive growth and sustainable development as part of the WTO's 'Trade Dialogues' process," ICC said in a statement.
The trade dialogue process was launched in 2016 with the support of ICC and the B20 in which over 60 business leaders and policy makers from across the globe participated in the latest dialogues.
At this year's Trade Dialogues, ICC chaired discussions on e-commerce, trade and sustainable development, and investment facilitation. Digital economy is changing the composition, nature and speed of global trade leading to policy friction - today's trade rules reflect 20th century patterns of trade. With the size of e-commerce touching USD 25 trillion, digital infrastructure is a key determinant required by SMEs in developing countries to be a part of the global value chain," Mittal said.
