Key subthemes of the GSSD Expo will be as follows:

• Digitalization and Smart Future

This year, the GSSD Expo is offering a Virtual Expo for all member states, UN agencies and institutions to exhibit and showcase their SSTrC solutions and initiatives. The virtual exhibition will remain active until GSSD Expo takes place in September 2022.
