According to a United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP) study, online purchases are estimated to account for about 19.4% of total purchases in 2023. In line with this, the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), in collaboration with UN-ESCAP successfully concluded the inaugural Asia Pacific E-Commerce Policy Summit.

As a keynote speaker, Mr. Santosh Kumar Sarangi, Additional Secretary & Director General, Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce & Industry (MoC&I), GoI emphasized the need for a mindset shift amongst trade regulators to keep in mind the changing export landscape.

UPI, for instance, has truly transformed money transfers by simplifying the entire process. Technology has made commerce and payments more accessible. It has bridged the gap between traditional complexities, making commerce and payments more accessible. Many Amazon customers, for example, prefer the convenient prepaid wallet options.”
