THE ADOPTION OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON THE USE OF ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS IN INTERNATIONAL CONTRACTS IN SERBIA – A WAY TO FACILITATE CROSS-BORDER TRADE

Dina Prokić

Sažetak


In the recent decades e-commerce has gained momentum. However, certain obstacles, like cross-country legal differences, prevent e-commerce from flourishing. In an attempt to overcome these hurdles, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law prepared a uniform framework, which the United Nations General Assembly adopted in 2005 as the Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts. The article addresses the Convention’s main features and compares them to the Serbian laws in the area of e-commerce. Furthermore, the article highlights how the Convention could inspire reform of certain legislative decisions, that currently complicate or prevent international trade. Finally, the article discusses the beneficial effects that the adoption of the Convention’s principles in domestic legislation would have on economy and the ICT sector.
