Policy Brief: e-Commerce Framework in CAREC

Apr 2020; CAREC Institute

Today, the whole world is in the information age. The globalization of commerce requires consistent laws and regulations not only to authorize but also to regulate electronic communications. For this purpose, the CAREC members have all enacted relevant laws but the laws are not always consistent, and they are often out of step with the best practices. This policy brief sets out the key policy issues: how strictly the state must prescribe acceptable methods of authenticating text and transacting parties; what shall be done to promote privacy, to prevent cybercrime and to protect consumers; how to follow the leading international trends, while expressing some concerns about the ability of private and public actors to make safe choices and about the ability of some member states to administer an effective regulatory regime.
