03 Nov Building an Inclusive E-Commerce Ecosystem in ASEAN: What Can Singapore Do?
E-commerce in ASEAN is fast becoming a new buzz word with expectations of it unlocking ASEAN’s next growth chapter. Aiming to capitalise on this potential, Singapore intends to promote e-commerce flows within ASEAN during her Chairmanship next year. Developing ASEAN’s e-commerce agenda means creating an inclusive ecosystem which can support the digitisation of the region.
Although the e-commerce sector is set to transform the face of ASEAN, there are currently more questions than answers. ASEAN’s onerous customs regulations, large connectivity deficits, limited regulatory frameworks to protect consumers and online businesses continue to present roadblocks. The Singapore Institute of International Affairs will hold an expert e-commerce workshop to discuss how ASEAN can create an inclusive e-commerce ecosystem and how it can provide free flow data across borders while addressing security concerns.
