The aim is to complement the work being carried out by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and reduce barriers making it easier for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to expand their trading capabilities worldwide. This e-hub is anticipated to enhance overall logistics efficiency to help SMEs better manage their exports especially with the surge in global e-commerce.
