Commerce 3.0 - U.S. Perspective

On October 24, eBay, along with the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC), hosted a launch event to release the U.S. version of the Commerce 3.0 report.  The U.S. report finds that the Internet and mobile technology are lowering barriers to international trade in a revolutionary way, creating new global trade opportunities for very small businesses in particular.  The US report makes the following policy suggestions:

  • Improve delivery services through technology and interoperable systems
  • Reduce customs complexity by creating rules that simplify customs procedures, particularly for low value packages
  • Create innovative trusted trade programs
  • Promote open development of mobile payments
  • Protect innovation that intermediaries bring to bear
  • Recognize Internet-enabled traders and the 21st century market in trade policymaking
