对于广大欠发达国家来说,跨境电子商务将使这些国家的民众能够享受贸易投资自由化带来的益处;该领域既得利益者少,谈判的阻力将相对较小

国务院发展研究中心副主任隆国强3月24日在北京《后巴厘工作方案与内罗毕部长会议前瞻:暨纪念WTO成立20周年》会议上表示,随着信息技术进步,跨境电子商务或可纳入世界贸易组织(WTO)谈判新议题。

  隆国强说,过去10年,中国电子商务蓬勃发展,使社会低收入人群参与到经济发展中来,给了人们创业新机会。“对于广大欠发达国家来说,跨境电子商务将使这些国家的民众能够享受贸易投资自由化带来的益处。”

  他表示,跨境电子商务仍属于新领域,既得利益者少,谈判的阻力将相对比较小。

  不过,他亦指出,跨境电子商务在物理层面需要有基建支持,在制度层面要有监管支持,发展中国家在这两方面还有很长的路要走。

Nasser embraced Africa, fostering leaders who sought to emulate his Egyptian revolution.

China could ask to join TPP, but would prefer finalizing the Doha Round with the WTO

GENEVA: The fact that the US-led Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, does not include China raises questions: Is the TPP meant to be an “anyone but China” club to contain the central kingdom?
