The virtual seminar series E-commerce Opportunities for Indigenous and Ethnic Communities: Bringing Innovation, Expanding Markets and Unleashing Potential aimed to enhance capability, participation, and success of those communities. It traversed how indigenous and ethnic communities and their agribusinesses can make the best use of technology and e-commerce to thrive and prosper and contribute to their broader and intergenerational aspirations. Indigenous and ethnic minorities responses to the multi-layered challenges of Covid-19 and sustainability are addressed throughout the series.
