APEC Leaders Declaration
Vancouver, Canada
November 25, 1997

We agree that electronic commerce is one of the most important technological breakthroughs of this decade. We direct ministers to undertake a work program on electronic commerce in the region, taking into account relevant activities of other international fora, and to report to us in Kuala Lumpur. This initiative should recognize the leading role of the business sector and promote a predictable and consistent legal and regulatory environment that enables all APEC economies to reap the benefits of electronic commerce.
