Dear colleagues,

This week, the GIP Digital Watch Observatory and DiploFoundation are
providing just-in-time reporting from most sessions at the UNCTAD
e-commerce week 2018 and from the second meeting of the group of
intergovernmental experts on e-commerce.

The overarching theme of the e-commerce week is the development dimension
of digital platforms. They key role that these platforms play in
facilitating international trade is being discussed, as well as their
potentially disruptive influence on the economy and the job market.

We hope this exercise will be useful to democratise discussions taking
place in Geneva.

All the best wishes,
