With key points to protect small businesses, adjust supply chains and boost regional trade for essential supplies, the International Trade Centre has launched its first e-publication.

The Great Lockdown is an interactive experience that brings the highlights of the International Trade Centre's flagship publication, the SME Competitiveness Outlook 2020, in a dynamic new format for both desktop and mobile users.

It offers new summaries in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. A dedicated section features supply chain disruption in six countries around the world, and access to all 85 countries in the original report. The analysis includes the impact on businesses owned by women and young entrepreneurs.

The epublication also brings together ITC's related work, including its ITC's web tv programme, dedicated web page on the impact of COVID-19 on small business, and the full PDF report.
