Register for the World Export Development Forum

Registration is now open:

Opening up new trade and investment opportunities to encourage sustainable growth will be at the heart of this year’s World Export Development Forum (WEDF), which will be held in Doha, Qatar from 20-21 October.

The 15th edition of the International Trade Centre (ITC)’s flagship event will be hosted by the Ministry of Finance of the State of Qatar through the Qatar Development Bank (QDB) under the theme ‘Sustainable trade: Innovate, invest, internationalize’. 

Policymakers, representatives of trade support institutions and businesses are invited to meet in Doha against the backdrop of the post-2015 development agenda calling to renewed efforts to unlock the potential of small and medium-sized enterprises, women and youth.

Alongside high-level panel discussions and practical working sessions, facilitated business-to-business meetings will allow participants to take advantage of the Gulf countries’ unique position at the crossroads where east meets west to explore new business opportunities.

More information on registration will follow shortly.
