This award-winning entrepreneur will be serving from 2024 to 2025. “As an advocate during my tenor, I am looking forward to serving and representing the voice of Africa’s SMEs and Fintechs at a global level.” Hilda Moraa posted on LinkedIn following the appointment. “With initiatives like eTrade for Women, I will be able to inspire and impact more women to drive purposeful entrepreneurship in STEM and join me in shrinking these inequalities once and for all.” Hilda shared with the eTrade for Women program.

UNCTAD (UN Trade and Development) supports developing countries to access the benefits of a globalized economy more fairly and effectively and they also equip them to deal with the potential drawbacks of greater economic integration. To do this, UNCTAD provides analysis, facilitates consensus-building, and offers other technical assistance. This helps them to use trade, investment, finance, and technology as vehicles for inclusive and sustainable development.
