According to the European Commission, the Internet economy is responsible for around "21% of the growth in GDP in the last five years" and adds "2.6 jobs for every job cut".
With the emphasis across Europe turning towards growth, how can policy-makers and stakeholders alike ensure that the potential for e-commerce in Europe is maximised, given that the cost of failure to complete the Digital Single Market before 2020 has been estimated at around €500 billion? Is such a completion likely in this time-scale given the continuing patchwork of national laws and rules? What are the major barriers that need to be overcome and how can a step-change in the development of e-commerce be achieved?
Sessions focused on:
- Realising the potential for ecommerce in Europe
- Payments & Logistics
- Implications for e-commerce of the new data protection proposals
