World Export Development Forum 2017


The World Export Development Forum (WEDF) is a unique global platform dedicated to supporting trade-led development.  

WEDF provides an issue-focused setting for policymakers, trade & investment support institutions and business leaders to gain practical understanding in trade competitiveness. It also provides unparalleled opportunities for business operators to network and meet with potential partners. Organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), the only United Nations organization with an exclusive focus on assisting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to internationalize, WEDF is dedicated to the development of SMEs.

WEDF will bring together over 600 senior national and international policymakers, heads of trade support organizations, business leaders and representatives of international agencies. Through high-level plenaries, workshops and facilitated business-to-business meetings, participants will increase their practical knowledge in the latest innovations, processes and policies, and establish new partnerships and contacts.
