Virtual Policy Workshop on Regulatory Frameworks for E-Commerce Development in the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Region

Webinar

Thursday, May 28, 2020

While the COVID-19 pandemic has distressed economic activity in the physical world, e-commerce has endured and continues to play a critical role in reducing the detrimental effects of COVID-19 and building economic resilience.

More broadly, e-commerce retains the potential to improve economic efficiency, create jobs, narrow development gaps, and increase socio-economic inclusiveness. This includes enabling small and medium-sized enterprises to reach global markets and compete on an international scale.

Co-hosted by ADBI and the CAREC Institute, this virtual policy workshop will explore new opportunities for CAREC countries to utilize e-commerce and regulatory approaches that can help to maximize the trade and sustainable growth benefits in the region.
