Swisscontact explains: Trade

Trade creates jobs and generates income. If traditionally, the marketplace was the venue to exchange goods, now it is online trade and supply chains. If trade can be simple, fast, and cost-effective, it will be the driver of economic development, contributing substantially to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  

The film uses the example of Leakhena from Cambodia to show how Swisscontact, together with the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation, supports SMEs and women-led businesses.
