The increase in international agreements and provisions related to cross-border paperless trade at the global and regional level can foster and accelerate cross-border trade facilitation and enhance intra-regional cooperation. However, their implementation requires consideration of certain legal issues, such as the legal status and recognition of information exchanged across the borders. Addressing such legal issues may present challenges related to the different national provisions on data recognition, maintenance, storage and control.
Several initiatives are underway to suggest effective solutions. International development partners such as UNESCAP, UNCITRAL, ICC, WTO, etc., are investing efforts in enhancing the cross-border legal environment, alongside the support for the application of advanced technologies, which may jointly foster trust in an international and regional electronic environment.
The webinar will provide examples of existing hindrances and possible solutions from a practical perspective. Speakers will provide guidance and implementation examples by referring to international legal standards.
Join us as and learn about cutting-edge approaches to the legal recognition of electronic exchanges across the borders.
