12 Caribbean Countries Heading to Workshop on E-commerce legislation harmonization in Trinidad

Given the importance of the adoption of compatible cyberlaws across countries for the development of e-commerce, UNCTAD together with the Latin American and Caribbean Economic System (SELA) and the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) are joining efforts to organize a Regional Workshop on E-commerce Legislation Harmonization in the Caribbean from 29 September to 2 October 2015 in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

This workshop is also sponsored by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and the Government of Finland.

The workshop will bring together representatives from twelve countries, who have previously completed a distance learning training on the Legal Aspects of E-Commerce held last April, along with experts from academia, international organizations and the private sector. Confirmed speakers include: TriniTrolley.com (the Caribbean’s largest e-Commerce business), the World Bank, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC), the United Nations Organization against Drugs and Crimes (UNODC) and the US Department of Justice.
