EFSA Cross Border Ecommerce Conference, 16-17 November

If ecommerce penetration of the total world retail market approaches China’s ecommerce share of retail (more than 30%), McKinsey estimates that the cross-border share of ecommerce would be close to 20% of retail trade, and the overall cross-border ecommerce market could total $2tn in merchandise value.
