07 Jun , 12:00–13:00
Goals and Objectives of Russia’s New Economic Cycle
pavilion G, conference hall G3

The development of e-commerce is currently having a beneficial impact on the creation of a common economic space and is improving people’s well-being, since it provides an opportunity to purchase a wide range of goods throughout Russia, including in remote and sparsely populated settlements. In addition, the evolution of e-commerce facilitates the development of logistics and transport infrastructure. E-commerce in marketplaces, in addition to the obvious benefits of e-commerce itself, also ensures growth in employment and the involvement of SMEs and provides consumers with a more convenient shopping service by offering them a wide selection of goods, as well as convenient delivery methods. This all highlights the importance of engaging in a broad discussion of various ways to regulate relations between participants in this market. What are the goals for the development of the e-commerce market? How can we develop effective ways to achieve them? In the current stage of market conditions, how can we assess the proportionality of the rights and obligations of its participants? What are the risks and benefits of both choosing or combining different regulatory options?
