Ecommerce Europe develops a Policy Track for Global E-commerce Summit 2017
This year, Ecommerce Europe presents four policy sessions within the Global E-commerce Summit.
The association representing over 25,000 online retailers in Europe joins the Global E-commerce Summit 2017 (GES2017) to provide an inimitable Policy Track. Ecommerce Europe has invited high-level policymakers, prominent e-commerce companies and promising start-ups, to discuss the impact of upcoming policy changes in the European e-commerce sector. Participants of the Policy Track will have the opportunity to discuss and prepare themselves for new rules and future regulations, as well as have a say in the debate concerning pressing policy choices currently in deliberation. Participants will also learn more about Ecommerce Europe's considered approach, which relies on proposal of innovative solutions in preference of creating excessive legislation where possible to shape the future of e-commerce in Europe.
The four topics for the Ecommerce Europe Policy Track include:
- Changing consumer legislation in Europe: Retailer and consumer rights.
- Proposal for new VAT rules for cross-border e-commerce: How could it benefit online shops?
- Thinking outside the parcel box: Let’s turn the analog parcel into a digital and interconnected one!
- The role of digital currencies and blockchain in e-commerce: Security vs. innovation.
