The New Economic Order: Responding to the Challenges of the Time
Congress Centre, conference hall B1

Given the rapid growth in cross-border e-commerce, such issues as creating comfortable conditions for Russian and foreign online platforms, improving customer service, and increasing the delivery speed of goods have become particularly important. An experiment to create bonded warehouses in Russia should be another step towards developing e-commerce in the country. Buyers will receive the goods they order in the shortest possible time without spending any extra time on customs formalities, while foreign and domestic sellers will be able to flexibly respond to demand and only pay customs duties for the goods that have actually been sold. What are the initial results of the experiment with bonded warehouses? What have end users, Russian producers, and importers gained from the new project? What are the prospects for the further development of cross-border e-commerce in Russia?
