Towards the trend of modern technology growing rapidly, it has been intergrated with trade in goods and services through electronic platform, which it is called “e-commerce”. This could be considered as new highly effective and essential business model since the development of e-commerce is expected to reduce the costs and barriers for small and medium businesses, including micro-enterprises, as to market access and distribution. Furthermore, consumers also obtain the benefits by approaching variety of goods with lower prices, said by H.E. Bounmy.

Recently,  the existing laws and regulations could not fully cover to e-commerce sector, which may impact to consumer confidence as this business model has no legal status. Therefore, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, in cooperation with related line ministries and sectors, has drafted the decree on electronic commerce to address on this matter, he said.
