Since nothing happens within ASEAN until it is integrated into the appropriate institutional framework, these are important results. ACCEC is now formally responsible for managing the objectives of ASEAN`s e-commerce and digital commerce policy. THE SEOM will have to report regularly on the progress made to ministers and then to heads of state and government. E-commerce relies on different types of technologies, for example. B: E-commerce agreements contain conditions for the various activities to be carried out through e-commerce transactions. These agreements provide protection for a company with respect to third-party services and transactions, as well as a limitation of liabilities. In addition, they come in all forms and relate to virtually any type of Internet business transactions. Therefore, internet professionals should be advised by competent lawyers experienced in the draft e-commerce agreements. Most of the nearly 2500 MSMEs participating in our Asia Pacific MSME Trade Coalition (AMTC) are active in e-commerce and digital commerce. Although not all of them are based in ASEAN, many people are engaged or supportive of the entire region. Most of them pointed to challenges related to inconsistent trade rules and regulations within ASEAN.
E-commerce and digital policy are currently taking place at the national level, within ASEAN, with ASEAN and its dialogue partners within the framework of the Comprehensive Regional Economic Partnership (RCEP) in Asia and even in Geneva as part of a World Trade Organization (WTO) initiative. Given the excessive importance of digital trade in Asia, all ASEAN members play an important role in the design of future trade agreements, which are important. E-commerce is also called e-commerce or e-commerce. eCommerce is any type of commercial or commercial transaction involving the transmission of information, products or services via computer networks. E-commerce agreements reveal the contractual relationship and obligations between the owner of a site and its commercial users. However, as with many things in ASEAN, all is not lost. This agreement is the starting point for a new debate on e-commerce and digital commerce. The agreement will be overseen by senior economic officials (SEOM) and implemented by the ASEAN E-Commerce Coordination Committee (ACCEC). CACCC will coordinate with other ASEAN agencies. This commitment has not been made. The final agreement will therefore be greeted with a yawn by many companies, who will probably be quite disappointed by the results contained in the document. This agreement applies to all orders placed by Synamedia for products or services, unless Synamedia and the Customer have entered into another written contract for such purchases and that agreement is in effect (“existing agreement”), in which case the existing agreement is intended for the applicable agreement.
In the meantime, ASEAN has begun to make progress in another important area by signing an e-commerce agreement. The deal was concluded in November 2018, but the text was finally published last week. A second obstacle to creating a useful agreement for digital commerce was the lack of commitment to the economy. While it is generally preferable to discuss with businesses when negotiating trade issues, in the field of developing e-commerce and in the digital field, it is absolutely essential that public servants constantly discuss ideas with the business community.
