Prof. Xue Addressed at the International Conference on Promoting Connectivity for an Inclusive Asia and the Pacific

International trade is a key driving force behind economic growth that since 1990 has listed more than a billion people out of poverty in Asia and the Pacific. However, in the years since the global financial crisis, trade growth has fallen behind GDP growth, after outpacing it for many decades. Despite early signs of a recovery in the growth of world trade, the global economic environment is still uncertain, and much remains to be done to realize potential trade outcomes for inclusive growth. The International Conference on Promoting Connectivity for an Inclusive Asia and the Pacific organized by Asia Development Bank (ADB) was held on June 27–28, 2018 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Prof. Xue was invited by the ADB and UNESCAP to present “Facilitation of Digital Trade Laws, Measures and Recent Developments in China” under the theme “Overview of Trade Facilitation and Paperless Trade Implementation”. She gave a comprehensive overview on the legal issues related to the SW facilities, the role of e-commerce platform services and international cooperation in cross-border e-commerce. She also briefly introduced the Chinese new E-Commerce Law. Her presentation was well received by the Central Asia audience and responded to many questions.
