APEC Electronic Commerce Steering Group

The APEC Electronic Commerce Steering Group (ECSG) promotes the development and use of paperless trading in commercial processes involving business-to-business and business-to-government transactions across APEC-member economies.

ECSG creates legal, regulatory and policy environments in the region by identifying possible standards and making recommendations, as well as educating through seminars, training sessions on various topics and carrying out other projects targeting at business communities, in particular SMEs in developing countries. ECSG also advocates a consistent approach to information privacy protection.
