According to the European Commission, the Internet economy is responsible for around "21% of the growth in GDP in the last five years" and adds "2.6 jobs for every job cut".

With the emphasis across Europe turning towards growth, how can policy-makers and stakeholders alike ensure that the potential for e-commerce in Europe is maximised, given that the cost of failure to complete the Digital Single Market before 2020 has been estimated at around €500 billion? Is such a completion likely in this time-scale given the continuing patchwork of national laws and rules? What are the major barriers that need to be overcome and how can a step-change in the development of e-commerce be achieved?

This year’s European E-Commerce Conference hosted by EDiMA and EMOTA in partnership with Forum Europe, will focus on how policymakers and e-commerce businesses can increase consumer confidence in the online/digital retail space as a means of increasing competition and driving growth.

About EU Internet WeekTM - “The first Internet policy focused week in Brussels”:

This event is being held as part of EU Internet WeekTM.
EU Internet Week TM has been created by Forum Europe and EDiMA with the aim of enabling policy-makers and stakeholders to engage on the key issues affecting the Internet’s development.

The power of the Internet, and the role online services can play in facilitating creativity and innovation, while boosting economic growth, is broadly acknowledged. The big question now is how EU policy can bring together member states to capitalise on the potential of the digital environment and the EU’s Single Market. And although there is clearly great potential for stimulating the European economy, online markets in the EU continue to contend with barriers to the growth of online goods and services.

Other highlighted events taking place as part of the week include:
The 4th Annual Internet of Things Europe
12th & 13th November 2012, The Management Centre Europe, Brussels www.iotconference.eu

The European Child Safety Online Conference 2012
15th November, Renaissance Hotel, Brussels www.childsafety-conference.eu
