Accelerating Ecommerce Development in Latin America: New Report for UN ECLAC
Ecommerce is opening new opportunities for Latin America companies to export and import, and regional consumers to gain access to goods and services at better prices. In this working paper for the United National Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Nextrade uses rigorous data analytics to show how firms that use ecommerce engage in trade, what the constraints to domestic and cross-border ecommerce are in the region, and what digital, trade, and technology policies Latin America governments should pursue to further firms and consumers' use of ecommerce in the region. The report has also been used as background paper for ECLAC's 2018 flagship report, International Trade Outlook for Latin America and the Caribbean.
