Proposals about the WTO Working Programme on Electronic Commerce (incl. "E-Commerce Moratorium")
Map of the Month 06/2022
The Work Programme on Electronic Commerce was adopted at the second WTO Ministerial Conference in 1998. Members agreed not to impose tariffs on electronic transmissions for the time being ("E-Commerce Moratorium"). This exemption has been extended at all subsequent WTO Ministerial Conferences so far. An extension of the Moratorium during the 12th Ministerial Conference cannot be taken for granted.
