The Chamber of Digital Economy joins EMOTA
In August, the Chamber of Digital Economy (e-Chamber) became a member of EMOTA, an international e-commerce and omnichannel trade organization.
The e-Chamber has been present in the Polish and European markets for several years. During this time, through our work at the Digital Economy School, we have created a strong educational section. We are just as active in legislative work, working through an expanded structure that is based on industry experts and professionals. We organize important industry events and we strive to build a business ecosystem.
For several years now, the e-Chamber has been a member of the international organization Ecommerce Europe, where we are active in governing bodies and influence what the organization does.
The European Union is intensifying the work on the regulation of all aspects of the European online trade supply chain. These regulations may bring benefits to online trade by removing the barriers to cross-border sales. Member companies of the Chamber of Digital Economy see the importance of a strong ecommerce industry that speaks in one voice. By joining EMOTA and by broadening our horizons, we are getting closer to this goal. By joining another international organization, member companies of the e-Chamber get access to international business relations, which are so crucial for business development, says Patrycja Sass-Staniszewska, the President of the Board of the Chamber of Digital Economy.
EMOTA Secretary General, Mr Maurits Bruggink, welcomes the Chamber of Digital Economy to EMOTA: “We are very pleased to welcome the Chamber of Digital Economy among our members and we look forward to working together with such active, reputable and successful association representing one of the biggest, constantly growing eCommerce markets in the European Union. Moreover, the Chamber of Digital Economy offers an excellent opportunity for our members to exchange information and market reports with Polish e-merchants, especially through their information portal komerso.pl.”
