The Australian Government has launched an E-commerce Aid for Trade Fund to help developing countries in the Indo-Pacific maximise the benefits of digital trade.

This Fund will support initiatives which help organisations and governments to build greater

e-commerce capabilities, enabling them to operate more effectively across borders and access new markets. Grants of up to AUD500,000 are available per project to be expended over a

12-month implementation period.

The Fund’s first round is open from 31 July to 1 September 2019, with a focus on developing countries in the ASEAN region. Grants are open to both public and private sector organisations with solutions for stimulating e-commerce activity locally.

Organisations may submit a short concept note via the Australian  Department  of Foreign  Affairs and Trade’s SmartyGrants website ixc.smartygrant  Applicants who successfully pass the concept note stage will be invited to submit a full proposal  in  the  coming months  for  a final funding decision by November.
