36th UN/CEFACT Forum

26 April - 07 May 2021
Virtual WebEx meeting Geneva Switzerland
36th UN/CEFACT Forum

Introduction

The United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) shall hold its 36th Forum as a fully virtual event.

The event general agenda will be available shortly.

The semi-annual Forums of UN/CEFACT bring together experts from the public and private sectors to work on trade facilitation recommendations and e-business standards on a global scale. As a virtual event, we look forward to enhancing the participation from those experts who may not normally be able to travel as well as welcome new experts. Detailed agendas for each domain will be made available soon; it is expected that this year’s Forum will advance, among other topics on:

  • Trade Information Portals e-business standards
  • Supply chain track and trace e-business standards
  • Dangerous goods e-business standards
  • Electronic certificates
  • Digital identity for trade facilitation
  • Sustainable tourism
  • Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)
  • UN/EDIFACT, UN/CEFACT Core Component Library

We look forward to seeing you virtually!
