Madagascar (19 – 23 February 2018)
Following the online training course on “Legal Aspects of E-Commerce” delivered in April/June 2017, a hands-on training with 60 magistrates, lawyers and policymakers is organized from 19 to 22 February by the UNCTAD e-Commerce and Law Reform programme and the TrainForTrade programme, of the Division on Technology and Logistics.
Strengthening the legal framework for e-commerce is important to build trust online and requires adequate understanding of relevant issues among all stakeholders.
This activity is part of capacity-building activities planned in Madagascar in support of the e-commerce laws adopted in 2014.
The training is co-organized with the World Bank, the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Justice, and the Committee for e-Commerce Development of Madagascar.
On 23 February, a conference on E-Commerce is organized with the participation of the Minister of Commerce.
The training course is sponsored by the Government of Finland.
