Pakistanís active role in e-commerce

E-commerce is one of the issues put forward for action by the Ministers in the 7th Ministerial Conference. Ministers would be expected to take a decision on reinvigoration of Work Programme and extension of Moratorium on imposition of customs duties on electronic commerce. There have been a divergence of views on extension of moratorium whereby some members take it as a reason of inactivity in this area since 1998, while the others take it as beneficial for their economies.

Pakistan has played a very vital role and established its credibility in bridging this gap. Members have appreciated Pakistanís constructive role and its proposals on text for draft decision.
