The contribution of electronic trade (e-commerce) platforms to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Facilitating the development of electronic trade / e-commerce platforms will have a positive impact on small and medium enterprises (SMEs), – especially in the least developed countries. At its turn, this would help to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth and employment, thus making a contribution to end poverty and impacting positively on several points of the sustainable development agenda.
