A Global Action Plan for Electronic Commerce – Second Edition

  • 11 November 2016

This second edition of the Global Action Plan for Electronic Commerce published by the Alliance for Global Business (AGB) reflects a number of developments in the global discussions about electronic commerce since the first Global Action Plan was submitted on behalf of business to the OECD Ministerial in Ottawa, Canada, in October 1998.

It also responds to a commitment that the AGB made in Ottawa behalf of business globally to submit evidence, after one year, that the various business actions set forth in the Global Action Plan were being properly implemented.

Part II of this document establishes a set of fundamental principles as the basis for the framework in which policymaking for electronic commerce should take place.

Part III presents a proposed framework for action that has been agreed by the world‘s leading international business organisations that are working together to provide business leadership, in cooperation with governments and others.

Part IV of the document presents a sample compilation of successful self-regulatory solutions currently in use or being developed, and indicates progress made in those projects that were also featured in the first edition of the Global Action Plan.

Part V describes the Alliance for Global Business.
