UNCTAD Review of E-commerce Legislation Harmonization in ASEAN - 25 September 2013
Galexia and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) have released a major report, entitled Review of E-commerce Legislation Harmonization in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (2013).
Galexia Director Chris Connolly was a major contributor to the report. The report is a follow-up to Galexia's previous AusAID funded project to harmonise e-commerce legal infrastructure in ASEAN (2004-2009) and Galexia’s earlier study for the UNCTAD Information Economy Report on ASEAN cyberlaw harmonisation in 2008.
This 2013 review documents the significant advances made by ASEAN countries in the area of e-commerce laws. It also makes proposals for accelerating the process of regional integration and harmonization as outlined in the ASEAN ICT Masterplan 2015.
Galexia’s extensive and detailed work with ASEAN has assisted ASEAN be the first region in the developing world to adopt a harmonized legal framework for e-commerce and it is the most advanced developing region in terms of implementing harmonized e-commerce laws.
The review includes detailed regional and national analysis of e-commerce laws, privacy, cybercrime and cloud computing.
