SheTrades and Visa: Gulf region



    The ITC SheTrades and Visa: Gulf Region Project aims to harness the economic potential of women-owned and led businesses in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and promote inclusive growth in the region. The project is implemented under the framework of Visa's regional grant and education programme, titled She's Next, with ITC SheTrades spearheading the capacity-building and networking component of the programme. 

    The collaboration unites ITC’s expertise in supporting the growth of women-owned and led businesses with Visa's advocacy efforts and networks in the region. The project falls under ITC's Women and Trade programme which contributes directly to ITC's impact area on Inclusive Trade and SDGs 5, 8 and 17.
