New information and communications technologies
are transforming the economic landscape bringing
unparalleled opportunity and change. The United
Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN/ECE)
is committed to ensuring that the transition
economies of central and eastern Europe and
the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)
will be able to exploit the immense potential
of the Information Age.
On 19 and 20 June 2000, the UN/ECE held a two-day
Forum on Electronic Commerce for Transition
Economies in the Digital Age immediately prior
to the annual session of its Committee for Trade,
Industry and Enterprise Development.
Speakers included high-ranking officials from
UN/ECE member States and key players in the
industry both at the global and regional level.
The Forum explored the central issues in electronic
commerce and Internet-based enterprise development
in transition economies. The discussions had
not only raised awareness of the current situation
but also provide a vision of the vast potential
and upcoming opportunities for these countries.
