2017年6月5日下午,一带一路经济体跨境电子商务法律问题国际研讨会(International Seminar on Legal Issues in Cross-Border E-Commerce Among One Belt One Road Economies)在后主楼1824高铭暄学术会议室举行。本次研讨会是由北京师范大学互联网政策与法律研究中心主办国际商会中国国家委员会海关与贸易便利化委员会合办的本次研讨会由北京师范大学互联网政策与法律研究中心主任薛虹教授现场主持,中华人民共和国商务部条约法律司黄杰处长、阿里研究院电商研究中心副主任薛艳女士、亿邦动力总裁郑敏先生、网规研究中心主任阿拉木斯先生和联合国国际贸易法委员会Luca Castellani先生 / Mr. Luca Castellani出席本次研讨会并进行主题发言。阿里巴巴集团、亿邦动力国际电子商务股份有限公司等企业和联合国国际贸易法委员会的代表以及北京师范大学的师生代表共计40余人参加了会议。六位主讲人分别从不同方面对一带一路跨境电商法律问题提出了自己的研究成果和畅想。

会议开始,在薛虹教授热烈欢迎各位嘉宾代表与会人员出席本次会议,并简单介绍了本次会议的与会人员和议程。

随后中华人民共和国商务部条约法律司黄杰处长就中国电子商务法草案中跨境电子商务法律制度发表了建议,他表示跨境电商对互联网+和双创都有促进、先导作用,对一带一路的建设提供了更好的平台。我们要在进行制度创新,推动制度设计,探索立法,借鉴各国立法经验。跨境电商作为新生事物,我们在立法中用专章来进行了总体规范,7个条款都是原则性规范,给未来的发展预留了足够的空间。

薛艳副主任以 eWTP助力“一带一路”建设为主题,就一带一路倡议与网上丝绸之路;阿里大数据与各沿路国的接入程度;阿里实践的经验; eWTP畅想四个方面进行了深入的讲解。

郑敏总裁主要为我们介绍了现阶段跨境电商态势的思考,他提到跨境电商主要带来了4个方面的变化,并介绍了跨境电商最新的动态:品质商品接棒拉动增长、趋零售态势更明显、新空间是综合供应链服务、数字丝路是海陆空网相乘、政策规则反复不必悲观。

阿拉木斯就我国“国内法律下跨境电子商务的平台责任”进行了深入的分析。他先从国内4个新事件入手,介绍了平台责任发展的3个阶段、6个趋势、以及现状,并总结了给平台责任的不确定因素,最后提出了不断拉高平台责任的危害。

薛虹教授以其丰富的实务经验和深厚的学术素养,主要介绍了联合国最新形成的《亚太地区跨境无纸贸易便利化框架协定》的主要形成过程和主要内容。该协定是由中、韩、俄三国领导倡议形成,在亚太地区适用,旨在促进各成员国法律与实践的协调化,其最核心的法律贡献是规范了电子形式贸易数据和文件的跨境互认。

Luca Castellani先生主要介绍了《联合国国际合同使用电子通讯公约》,他认为,实体贸易想要在现有各国法律体系上实现一体化很难,但跨境电商作为新生事物,应采用不同的模式,将联合国示范法推广到各国,以实现贸易便利化。他还认为跨境电商中,B2B虽然是不可避免的难点,但G2G更是难点。如何讲非歧视原则、功能等同原则、技术中立原则理想的适用于各国的司法、公法模式是我们要一直努力的工作,但现在更迫在眉睫的是怎么将该3个原则适用于跨境贸易便利化中。

会议最后,薛虹教授在总结讲话中再次对各位代表的出席和表示衷心感谢

本次研讨会是北京师范大学法学院“国际电子商务联合认证项目第四届春季国际电子商务法学术周”(2017 Spring JCP Academic Week)的系列活动之一。联合国国际贸易法委员会亚太地区中心(UNCITRAL RCAP)与北京师范大学(BNU)国际电子商务法联合认证项目(JCP)自2013年建立以来,于2014年至2016年成功举办了三届“国际电子商务法学术周”活动,包括学术研讨会、学术讲座、模拟法庭等,与教学科研紧密结合、良性互动,成效显著。

中国电子商务法草案公布 New Model Law for Developing Countries

《中华人民共和国电子商务法(草案)》(简称草案)于2016年12月25日提交全国人大常委会审议,参与草案起草工作的北京师范大学互联网法律与政策研究中心主任薛虹于12月23日向中新社记者表示,该草案是世界首部综合性的电子商务法案,有望引领此领域的立法潮流。

联合国于1996年12月16日出台首部《电子商务示范法》(UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Commerce),世界电子商务立法迎来“破冰”。“该法堪称电子商务立法的‘1.0版本’”,薛虹说。此后,欧美主要经济体都照此制定了类似法律,可以称为“2.0版本”。时隔20年,世界电子商务的发展与之前已经不能同日而语,中国在此领域的发展也已经达到全球前列高度。“中国根据新的变化和要求进行立法,有望成为世界电子商务立法的‘3.0版本’,起到示范作用”,薛虹说。

她认为,从国际视角来看,草案主要有三方面特点。一是全面吸收借鉴了全球电子商务立法的经验,并体现了中国立法的“原创智慧”。如草案赋予了第三方电子商务平台法律地位,并创造性地规范与监管电子商务平台的信用管理机制、在跨境电子商务综合服务者方面设立相关规定。“这都是世界现有法律没有的,体现了中国立法的原创性”,薛虹说。

二是在草案中,中方明确了愿意参与构建相关国际法律的态度。如草案第七十三条规定,国家推动建立与不同国家、地区间跨境电子商务的交流合作,参与电子商务国际规则的制定。薛虹说,这从立法领域体现出中国的开放态度,中国今后在电子商务领域将更深度融入世界。

三是目前看,中国电子商务法草案是世界此领域首部综合性立法,对于其他国家尤其是发展中国家的立法起到积极的示范作用。薛虹表示,经过20年的发展,世界上主流国家对于电子商务的规范还停留在一些分门别类的条款中,如有的单独对电子交易进行规范、有的单独对交易平台进行规范。“而中国在立法之初,就将与电子商务有关的领域都考虑进去,是立法体例的创新。”

草案对与电子商务有关的领域都作出了规范,如电子支付、快递物流等内容都被纳入其中,并在争议解决、市场秩序与公平竞争、知识产权保护、个人信息保护等方面作出了相关规定。

薛虹说,此次在立法过程中,起草组充分听取各方意见,先后召开两次国际研讨会,并将草案翻译成英文,邀请联合国国际贸易法委员会和美国、欧盟、日本、新加坡等国专家进行研讨,在此基础上进行丰富和修改。

“草案英文版公布后在一些国家引起了强烈反响”,薛虹说,许多发展中国家的专家看过后表示,现在要学习的不再是20年前的联合国示范法,而是要学习中国的做法。“这也是中国对于全球电子商务立法的主要贡献。”

On June 17, 2016, four Members of the JCP International Expert Advisory Committee (IEAC), Prof. Xue, Dr. Luca Castellani, Dr. Yann Duval and Mr. Alamusi had a study tour at the headquarter of Alibaba Inc. in Hangzhou. The IEAC members listened the introduction on Alibaba’s international business and especially the One-Touch paperless trade system and expressed their willingness to engage the private sector, particularly the platform service providers like Alibaba, in the international law and trade facilitation activities. Both parties agreed that they would continue the corporation and develop new projects for collaboration.

Prof. Xue Presented at the Global Facilitation Partnership for Transportation and Trade 2016 Annual Forum

The Global Facilitation Partnership for Transportation and Trade (GPF) 2016 Annual Forum, organized by ICC, UNIDO and ITC, was successfully held at Invest Shanghai, 15/F New Town Tower, Shanghai.  More than 80 representatives from the international organizations (ICC, UNIDO, ITC, UNECE, WCO. UNCTAD), customs authorities (Cambodia, Guatemala), private sector and academia joined the meeting and shared their views on a variety of trade facilitation issues in the nutshell of implementation of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA). ICC China invited around 20 businessmen (including Huawei, Alibaba, Sinotrans) from China and other countries to join the Forum.
Prof. Xue gave a presentation at the session on “regional integration”. Prof. Xue talked about the importance of the newly formed UNESCAP Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-Border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific (FA) to the regional integration in the following three aspects.
(1) Legal harmonization across the region
Deep regulatory fragmentation and variation of laws and regulations are pledging the cross-border paperless trade. The FA that is completely complimentary to the WTO TFA provides the legal framework to harmonize the regulatory systems in the region through encouraging the Member States to adopt to the international laws and standards (particularly from UN/CEFACT, ISO and WCO) in their domestic laws.
(2) Legal connectivity
The FA, particularly Art. 8, provides the mutual recognition of e-data and document originated from the other Member States at the substantially equivalent level of reliability, which removes the legal barrier of cross-border paperless trade. The substantially equivalent level of reliability may be achieved through the institutional arrangement of the FA (such as the protocols) or bilateral or multilateral agreements among the Member States. The current FTAs (such as TPP, RCEP), if consistent with the FA, may also be linked up to enable the mutual recognition.
(3) Engagement with the private sector
Prof. Xue emphasized the importance to engage the private sector in composing and implementing the Action Plan, Road Map and pilot projects of the FA and called their participation in the FA process.
Prof. Xue’s presentation on FA was very well received by the audience. Dr. Saeed from ITC (who is a member of UNNeXT) gave the positive comments. All the participants are getting more interested in the FA and its future implementation. The representative from DHL supported the FA initiative and hoped that its implementation would release logistic companies from submitting both e-copies and paper forms for customs clearance. Prof. Xue responded that “data submitted once” is the kernel of Single Window (SW) definition and the requirement of dual submission is not consistent with UN/CEFACT Rec. 33 on SW. However, if a country has no SW in place, the principle of non-discrimination does not exclude the coexistence of both e-form and paper form. Prof. Xue also briefly talked about the Chinese e-commerce lawmaking.
The newly formed China’s National TF Commission to implement the TFA, Huawei’s Global Customs Project, Alibaba OneTouch and the pilot APEC Model E-Port Network (APMEN) (like PAA exchanging e-data and documents among the ports in the network) are all  interesting initiatives and deserve further research.
