The Relevance Of Electronic Commerce For Durable Development. Challenges For Romania


  • Assist. Ph.D Student Maruntelu Irina

    (Academy of Economic Studies, Faculty of Commerce, Bucharest, Romania)


This article aims to approach the topic of the electronic commerce considering the context of the durable development, without exclusively limiting to the economic dimension of sustainable development. This paper aims to offer a vision on the e-commerce based on an optimistic approach of the reconciliation between economic growth and durable development, but moderate by the current realities (digital divide between countries/regions, economic crisis etc). Furthermore, by identifying some of the problems that Romania encounters concerning the construction of a competitive information society, the article presents also the possible solutions that can help our country to benefit of the advantages of the e-commerce.
