Asean E-Commerce Agreement Text

It is therefore necessary for ASEAN to begin to address e-commerce and digital trade in a regional way. This is where free trade agreements (FAs) come into play.

Even the state of knowledge between officials responsible for artisanal policy can vary considerably. The agreement contains a clause to review the agreement within three years. In the meantime, ASEAN has begun to make progress in another important area by signing an e-commerce agreement.

Most of them pointed to challenges related to inconsistent trade rules and regulations within ASEAN. This commitment has not been made. The final agreement will therefore be greeted with a yawn by many companies, who will probably be quite disappointed by the results contained in the document. The agreement reached in November contains some useful provisions to get started. It urges Member States to use paperless trading systems and the use of information (other than financial services) electronically, including digital signatures. It encourages members to be transparent about consumer protection measures and calls for the protection of personal data on the internet.

Fortunately, ASEAN has a free trade agreement between its member states for e-commerce players in Southeast Asia, to facilitate the strengthening of regional trade through the processing of transit legislation and directives.
