Stimulating cross-border e-commerce is Ecommerce Europe’s mission, and therefore we are happy to know that the digital sector is booming. Online retail continues to grow significantly. The European e-commerce turnover managed to increase 13.3% to €455.3 billion in 2015. Compared to the 1.0% growth of general retail in Europe, we can safely state that online trading is here to stay. However, the full potential of the European e-commerce market has not been reached yet. We want to work together with all European stakeholders to rapidly remove remaining barriers in the cross-border online sales market, and we do so by providing policy and market solutions which are evidence-based.
