The Trade Helpdesk is an online global portal to improve the quality and transparency of trade-related information, and strengthen public-private dialogue. Building on existing ITC, UNCTAD and WTO services as well as partner organisations’ information, the Trade Helpdesk aims to support economic actors by:

  • Providing a unique entry point to existing trade-related information;
  • Translating trade-related information into trade intelligence;
  • Raising awareness and capacity of MSMEs on the use of trade information.
