The World Trade Organization (WTO) plans to develop uniform standards and rules in the global e-commerce market. On this occasion, representatives of 75 countries will take part in the talks, including the EU countries, the USA, China, and Japan. This decision was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos, reports Bloomberg.
It is not yet known exactly what the agreement will be. But it is already clear to representatives of the states that it is no longer possible to ignore a market whose size is $ 25 trillion. In addition, the size of the market is rapidly increasing every year. Naturally, it will be about creating rules that will become common to all countries.
Cecilia Malmstrom, a member of the European Commission on Trade, said that WTO representatives would take on such a difficult task as regulating global e-commerce in the near future.
