17th WORLD EXPORT DEVELOPMENT FORUM (WEDF)
The 17th World Export Development Forum (WEDF) will be held on 24-26 October 2017 in Budapest, Hungary. The event will be co-hosted by the International Trade Centre(ITC) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary. Over 160 companies from 31 countries are registered to participate in business-to-business (B2B) meetings focusing on agricultural technologies, agricultural crops and oil seeds. This will give national and international companies the opportunity to network and make deals.
The sessions cover how to make trade work for the 99%; growing from a start-up to a successful international business; expanding digital trade (e-commerce); and innovative business-government partnerships to build competitiveness; and moving from agriculture to agribusiness. Environmental sustainability is also an important theme of the Forum with sessions on ‘green’ business and turning waste into wealth.
