MSMEs are invited to submit their stories no later than 30 July 2021. The story should briefly explain how your business has been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic, what measures you have taken to stay in operation and how trade has helped you to overcome the challenges. The story may be submitted as an audio file or as a short text. The online application form can be accessed here. Selected stories will be featured on the WTO website.
