ITC will place a spotlight on the role of trade and small businesses in supporting the achievement of the Paris Goals

The 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP27, will be held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from 6 to 18 November 2022. ITC will participate with a Pavilion, a SME delegation and curated side events, showcasing its work related to Climate Change.
