In a world of rapid technological change and digitization, trade policy must evolve to empower new forms of digital commerce, and reduce barriers that hold back broad-based growth opportunities. Working closely with the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, this project deploys public-private collaboration to define and implement digital trade policy frameworks by: 

- Steering and shaping policy developments related to e-commerce, digitization of trade, and cross-border data flows nationally, regionally, and globally
- Providing insights and capacity building for policymakers to understand and deal with rapidly-changing technologies in digital trade and cross-border data flows
- Generating global thought-leadership and developing practical solutions to advance inclusive growth and sustainable development in digital trade
- Designing and implementing 4IR pilot projects that operationalise policies to shape the trajectory of new technologies and to create tangible economic and social impacts
