Regional capacity building events to raise awareness of the role of competition related policies for access to markets in post COVID-19 resurgence of MSMEs
ECLAC, ESCAP, ESCWA, UNCTAD, UNECA, UNECE
The Competition and Consumer Protection Policies Branch at UNCTAD in collaboration with the United Nations Regional Economic Commissions, has issued guidance to member States on re-activating their economies.
Responding to a request from the Government of El Salvador, the project allowed for the creation of an online single window for MSMEs to register and access digital services, encouraging businesses formalization. Launched in June 2020, using a platform that can be configured for different countries, Cuentamype.org allows entrepreneurs to register their companies online - eliminating the previous cumbersome task of having to queue at multiple government offices.
The webinars aimed at raising awareness of the role of entrepreneurship policies in the MSME resurgence and of UNCTAD's Entrepreneurship Policy Framework. Bridging gaps between theory and practice is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Policies allow the cohesion and articulation of strategies to undertake concrete actions with impact on the collective welfare.
