E-COMMERCE AND THE FUTURE OF RUSSIAN RETAIL

16:45-18:00 Congress Centre, Conference Hall D2
E-commerce sales are projected to reach RUB 2.18 trillion by 2020, while at the same time the use of cloud technology is being rapidly adopted, with one in three Internet retailers already using a public cloud platform. More recently, cross-border transactions have increased with Chinese players taking market share. What is the future of Russian e-commerce? What companies are the most frequent users of cloud solutions? What barriers should Russia overcome in order to fully realize its e-commerce potential?
