This is us:


The digital economy and its effects on countries’ economic growth prospects and export efforts are currently receiving much attention, including from NWU research entity TRADE.


TRADE is part of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Chairs Programme. In recognition of the excellent work Prof Wilma Viviers has done  in this entity over the past few years, the WTO has agreed that the NWU should continue to host the chair for another four-year run.


In the video on the right, Wilma – who will remain the chair holder – tells us about the exciting projects that TRADE is undertaking in 2020.


Still teaming up with World Trade Organization

The projects that are in the pipeline for TRADE include writing a book titled Africa’s digital future: From theory to action and cooperation with the WTO Chair in Tunisia. Watch the video to learn more about these developments.
