The Importance of e-commerce

22 billion will be spent online in the UK by 2007 (source UK government statistics).


E-commerce is likely to have a huge impact on the way we do business. It has the potential to lead to dramatic growth in trade, increase markets, improve efficiency and effectiveness and transform business processes. In recognition of its significance in the future performance of the economy, the UK Government set itself the target of becoming the best environment in the world to do e-commerce.
