Supporting small businesses through the COVID-19 crisis

  • The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is causing a global health emergency, and a global economic slowdown. Trade, investment, growth, and employment are all affected and the crisis will have an impact on the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

    As the only international organization fully dedicated to supporting the competitiveness of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), the International Trade Centre is closely following how the pandemic is affecting MSMEs with a particular focus on those small businesses in developing countries.

    On this site, we are providing insights and guidance to small businesses searching for ways to cope with the operational stress generated by COVID-19. This will also be a useful resource for business support organizations and policymakers assisting MSMEs in these efforts.


    This dedicated page represents analysis and stories focusing on the first response of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on small businesses between March and September 2020. As the economic effects of COVID-19 persist and continue to affect businesses around the world, all of our news and reports reflect the ITC response to the consequences around the pandemic.
