The Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat (TCS) released the Final Report of the Joint Study <Trilateral Cooperation on E-Commerce>, on the occasion of the 12th Trilateral Economic and Trade Ministers’ Meeting in Beijing, China on December 22, 2019.

The initial discussion on e-commerce cooperation was encouraged by the three leaders at the 6th Trilateral Summit in Seoul in 2015 to explore possible ways of cooperation in e-commerce. In 2016 at the 11th Trilateral Economic and Trade Ministers’ Meeting in Tokyo, the three ministers agreed to launch a joint study on e-commerce which the TCS would participate as a facilitator.

The TCS initiated to coordinate the Joint Study <Trilateral Cooperation on E-Commerce> in 2017 with the participation of the Ministry of Commerce of China (MOFCOM), the Ministry of Trade, Economy and Industry of Japan (METI) and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of the ROK (MOTIE). The three research institutes were designated by each country: China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), and the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP).

Through three times of Working Group Meetings facilitated by the TCS in close consultation with the three Ministries, the designated research institutes analyzed elements of e-commerce including consumer protection and security, e-payment and delivery, and data flows. The three research institutes also reviewed the status of domestic and cross-border e-commerce and its economic impacts. The Final Report is the outcome of this joint study.
