Invitation to "Academic Annual Conference 2016 -- E-Commerce Law Forum"

On Thursday, 20 October 2016, the China-EU School of Law at the China University of Political Science and Law organize the "Academic Annual Conference 2016- E-Commerce Law Forum" in Beijing.

The size and growth rate of the e-commerce market in China with more than 721 million Internet users is unique. With the dramatic growth of e-commerce in recent years, the Chinese legislation on e-commerce needs to keep up, in both regulatory theory and practice. The European Union, a market with 530 million internet users, also faces challenges in the regulation of e-commerce due to the fast changing technology. In China, there is a general agreement for the further need of legislation in the field of e-commerce. A draft for a new “e-commerce law” compiled by experts was issued in early 2016. Both China and the EU are facing common legislation challenges to regulate many difficult issues such as transaction security, consumer protection, digital content etc. brought by fast growing e-commerce where legislation and regulations are left behind. During this academic conference legal scholars and experts will meet to exchange ideas on e -commerce legal reform and its challenges
