Project Summary

Background: The recent developments of information technologies, as exemplified by the internet, have profound positive impacts to spur innovation on the manufacturing and services, and dramatically reduced the cost of international trade. The internet has, since its birth in the last century, accelerated data flows across the border, transformed R&D, production, delivery and consumption process of goods and services and created numerous business opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region. As a result, trade opportunities have been created for a broader range of people and businesses, especially for those traditionally outside of global value chains due to the lack of appropriate infrastructure, efficient logistics or access to suitable markets. Against this background, recent RTAs / FTAs have developed Electronic Commerce Chapters. It is beneficial for APEC economies to share experiences and deepen understanding on existing and emerging related issues.

APEC has conducted a number of initiatives under the Capacity Building Needs Initiative (CBNI) as contributions to the eventual realization of the FTAAP. In 2014, to maintain and utilize the momentum created in the first phase of the initiative, the APEC Leaders endorsed the Action Plan Framework for the second CBNI. The proposed seminar is conducive to the successful implementation of the second CBNI. With other initiatives including "Promote Cross-border E-Trade under the Framework of RTAs/FTAs - Based on Best Practices in the APEC Region", it also intends to enhance overall understanding and develop RTA/FTA capacities in the area of Electronic Commerce Chapter.

Expected Outcome:

1) To organize the CBNI seminar on Electronic Commerce Chapter of the RTA/FTAs  (at the margin of CTI1 2017 in Viet Nam);

2) To share experiences and understand business needs; and

3) To increase capacity(ies) and explore possible implications on trade and situation of economy(ies) if participating in the FTA/FTAAP.
