Discover a transformative opportunity to empower micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and other groups with untapped economic potential in the international marketplace. This hackathon addresses the question: “How can we help MSMEs and other groups participate in global digitally-enabled trade?”

The internet and digital tools have revolutionized global trade, opening doors to a more inclusive landscape. Digitally-enabled trade provides a cost-effective avenue for MSMEs, women, minorities, Indigenous Peoples as appropriate, people with disabilities, and those from remote and rural communities to connect with global customers and expand their reach beyond domestic markets.

Aligned with the 2023 APEC theme of “Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Future for All,” this year’s APEC App Challenge embraces the concepts of resiliency, sustainability, and inclusivity. The focus is to enable MSMEs and other underrepresented groups to seize unprecedented opportunities in global digitally-enabled trade.

Join this hackathon and contribute your innovative ideas to empower and uplift these businesses and communities. Together, we can create a resilient and sustainable future that embraces inclusivity and unlocks the untapped economic potential of MSMEs and other groups.
