One of the most striking effects of the pandemic has been the huge growth of e-commerce. However, figures for Russia are still comparatively low. The average number of online purchases made per person per year in China is now 30, in Japan it is 25, while in Russia it is a little over five. Given the potential for development, e-commerce is becoming a strategic sector in the EAEU, and it is vital to address a range of issues concerning regulation, infrastructure, and others if the sector is to realize its potential. What are the priorities for the EAEU’s e-commerce roadmap under its 2025 development strategy? What measures can be taken to solve the most pressing issues that e-commerce businesses are already facing today? And what can be done to shore up public support and ensure that new regulations do not inhibit user demand?
