Today, e-commerce is an everyday feature of commercial activity. Businesses increasingly use it as a more efficient means of conducting purchase and sales transactions, and private individuals are tending to order more goods and services online. The availability of digital products and services delivered electronically is constantly growing and geographical borders tend to vanish. Regulation of e-commerce is not yet very advanced on the level of international trading. In this context Switzerland aims to work together with her trading partners to strengthen the multilateral trading system.
