International HDM Workshop Digital Services Infrastructure of the National Markets and Electronic/Paperless Trade Systems

Harmonising Digital Markets of EU and EaP countries - HDM Strategic Initiative

Date:  April, 23rd 2015

Place: Business Centre, Hotel Victoria, 5th floor 



To improve national competitiveness and increase export the Eastern Partner (EaP) countries need to develop the digital service infrastructure of their markets and e-Trade (paperless trade) systems.

e-Trade can be defined as the application of information and communications technologies (ICT) to improve export competitiveness of the country and its businesses. Exporters and importers can take advantage of these technologies to transform business processes so that they can compete more profitably, as well as to conduct trade deals and transactions in digital format across national borders. More specifically e-Trade is about the international trade transactions which covers either all or some parts of trade procedures on-line via e-Documents instead of conventional paper-based way.

To develop the digital services infrastructure of the national market and e-Trade system the country has to have the functioning telecommunications backbone and e-Commerce legal framework.
