WTO and ICC recently announced that a proposal, submitted by Google, is the first to be selected under the Small Business Champions initiative. The proposal is for a video competition inviting micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) to share their stories, through a short video, about how they have used internet technologies to participate in trade. The competition will be called the “Small Businesses Going Global Video Challenge”.
ICC and WTO will run the competition and select the winner and two runners-up, which will be announced at the WTO's 11th Ministerial Conference in Buenos Aires in December 2017. The winner and runners-up will win a trip to a master class at Google in digital skills tailored to MSMEs, the cost of which will be covered by Google.
