On 2 December 2022, the first Pacific E-commerce Committee was held marking a milestone achievement for the Pacific E-commerce Initiative through the creation of a forum that focuses on accelerating e-commerce readiness in the Pacific as guided by the Pacific Regional E-commerce Strategy and Roadmap.
Over 60 participants representing 12 country members and 18 observers attended the first Pacific E-commerce Committee meeting held virtually on 2 December 2022.
The meeting presented the progress made towards the implementation of the Pacific Regional E-commerce Strategy and Roadmap, gave the opportunity to Member countries to showcase their recent developments in e-commerce and endorsed the terms of reference for the establishment of the Pacific E-commerce Committee and its two sub-Committees, namely the Pacific E-commerce Private Sector and Development Partners Sub-Committees.
The first Monitoring and Evaluation Report on implementation of the Regional Strategy, available here, revealed that 43% of the Strategy’s measures are under implementation through targeted projects by the Strategy’s implementing partners.
The meeting was organized by the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIF) and progresses the implementation of measure 1.1.2 of the Pacific Regional E-commerce Strategy and Roadmap endorsed by Forum Trade Ministers in August 2021.
