ITC is dedicated to building the international competitiveness of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and helping them connect to markets as an engine for sustainable and inclusive growth and job creation. ITC works with MSMEs, policy makers and trade and investment support institutions to ensure trade impact for good through its 100% Aid-for-Trade mandate.
ITC collaborates with a range of funders and strategic partners to deliver transformative interventions. In addition to contributions from Member States, ITC is supported by other United Nations organizations, regional organizations, multilateral partnerships and funds, multilateral financial institutions, the private sector, among other resource partners. ITC’s funders and resource partners provide both financial support and in-kind contributions, as well as knowledge sharing and technical expertise.
This reflects ITC’s belief that a cross-sectoral and coordinated approach is required to advance inclusive and sustainable economic development, and to effectively achieve the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
