  • E-Commerce Trends in Asia Kurt Cavano Chairman and CEO, TradeCard September 2004 Presented at American Chamber of Commerce Taipei
  • Ensuring Asia’s Competitive Advantage
    • Low cost labour is not enough to maintain Asia’s success as workshop of the world; buyers move on to the cheapest location when production costs go up in Asia
    • Asia’s traders need real-time information to fulfill their buyers’ growing demands for faster turnaround and shorter lead-times
    • Greater visibility helps to reduce cost and credit risk
    • Paperless trade through automation ensures better relationships with overseas trading partners
    • Overseas buyers are only willing to purchase from those vendors that can meet electronic/automated service requirements
  • B2B eCommerce Trends
    • In 2004, US$992 billion, or 13% of all B2B transactions globally will happen in Asia/Pacific (Gartner Group)
    • However, security concerns are still a serious impediment to the growth of e-commerce
    • Pan-regional efforts on the implementation of a secure e-commerce infrastructure for trade, such as the Pan Asian Alliance and APEC’s efforts show, getting rid of paper is key in maintaining a competitive edge in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • What the Analysts are Saying
  • How Ready is Asia for E-Business?
    • The Economist Intelligence Unit produces “E-business readiness rankings” every year whereby countries are assessed according to the following criteria:
    • Technology infrastructure
    • General business environment
    • Degree to which e-business is adopted by consumers and companies
    • Social and culture conditions that influence Internet usage
    • Availability of services to support e-businesses
  • Economist Intelligence Unit E-Readiness Survey – Ranking Globally 2004 e-readiness score (of 10) out of 70 countries 6.8 7 7.2 7.4 7.6 7.8 8 8.2 8.4 Denmark UK Sweden Norway Finland US Singapore Netherlands Hong Kong Switzerland Canada Australia Germany South Korea Austria Ireland Belgium France New Zealand Taiwan 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 Country & ranking Score
    • The annual EIU survey assesses countries’:
    • technology infrastructure
    • general business environment
    • degree to which e-business is being adopted by consumers and companies
    • social and culture conditions that influence Internet usage
    • the availability of services to support e-businesses

    • The annual EIU survey assesses countries’:
    • technology infrastructure
    • general business environment
    • degree to which e-business is being adopted by consumers and companies
    • social and culture conditions that influence Internet usage
    • the availability of services to support e-businesses
  • Asian Countries are Catching Up*
    • After Western Europe,Asia-Pacific is the next-best represented region in the 2004 e-readiness rankings. Singapore (7th) and Hong Kong (9th) are in the top ten, followed by Australia (12th), South Korea (14th), New Zealand (19th),Taiwan (20th) and Japan (25th).
    • Asian governments are intimately familiar with each other ’s e-development practices and i ncreasingly, there is cooperation at both the national and the industrial level.
    • Despite the rapid growth of e-trading platforms, particularly in the regional finance and trading hubs of Singapore and Hong Kong, enabling technologies such as digital signatures and digital rights management remain under-utilised by businesses.
    • This is not for lack of legal infrastructure; even Thailand has passed legislation recognising the legitimacy of digital signatures. But Asian banks, a key link in the e-commerce chain, have not adopted them in their own transactions, let alone mandated them in their clients.

    • Aim: help companies in the information industry to establish electronic supply chain systems, as well as to encourage thousands of Taiwanese small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to acquire the basic capabilities needed for business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce.
    • 2001: implementation of Projects C, D and E, building on existing electronic supply chain system as the foundation for further integration of money flow, materials flow and R&D and design
    • Aim: to provide companies in all segments of the supply chain with e-services for cash flow, delivery system and uniform engineering collaboration, and to strengthen their logistics management capability.  
  • Hong Kong: DTTN
    • The Digital Trade and Transportation network is an initiative by the HK government and electronic trade services provider Tradelink (42% government-owned) to help smooth trade flows
    • DTTN seeks to provide a shared electronic infrastructure to enable the exploration, development, and delivery of innovative value-added services to improve competitiveness in trade and logistics
    • DTTN will facilitate 10 major processes, from creating sales/purchase contracts and insurance to arrangement/execution of transporation and submission of trade declarations and other licenses.
  • Asia: Pan Asia e-Commerce Alliance
    • Aim: Create a regional electronic trade infrastructure for secure e-commerce between traders in PAA member countries or economies which include Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Malaysia and Macau. Thailand and Indonesia send observers and are potential members.
    • Activities include
      • creation of a Secure Cross Border Transaction Service, with a set of electronic trade documents
      • Pan-Asian Trade Portal
    • PAA members use PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) for e-commerce security, and are using digital certificates issued by Certificate Authorities under a mutual recognition scheme operated under PAA.
    • Current PAA cross-border electronic trade chains are claimed to provide cost savings of 40% or more compared with manual methods
  • Singapore: Trade-net
    • Nationwide electronic trade documentation system that approves permit applications almost instantaneously
    • Allows electronic submission of permit applications to multiple government bodies for processing of import, export, and transshipment documentation.

    • Establishment of e-ASEAN information infrastructure and growth of electronic commerce
    • ASEAN governments commit themselves to foster a favorable legal and policy environment for the development and use of Information and Communication technologies (ICT)
    • e-ASEAN aims for the liberalization of trade in products and services and the promotion of investments in the production of ICT products and in the provision of ICT services.
    • Establishment of a system of mutual recognition of digital signatures; secure electronic transactions, payments and settlements; protection of intellectual property rights arising from e-commerce; measures to promote personal data protection and consumer privacy; and dispute settlement mechanisms.
    • Aim: to reduce the digital divide between developed and developing nations
  • APEC E-Commerce Steering Committee
    • APEC member countries are working towards a cross-border paperless trading environment
    • Through the 1998 APEC Blueprint for Action on e-Commerce, member economies are committed to a goal of achieving “Paperless Trading,” where possible, by 2005 for developed economies and 2010 for developing economies.
    • Sixteen economies have now prepared Paperless Trading Individual Action Plans. These outline the steps APEC economies are taking to meet APEC's target to reduce or eliminate the requirement for paper documents needed for customs and other cross-border trade administration and other documents and messages relevant to international sea, air and land transport.

    • Continued adoption of supply chain and payment technologies by overseas buyers
    • Quota systems demands flexibility
  • A Unique Opportunity: Financial Supply Chain Management
    • Asian governments understand the necessity for automating documents, but connecting the physical flow of goods with the financial processes revolutionizes the whole concept of global trade.
    • “ The good news is that $260 billion in cash is concealed in the financial supply chains (of the Global 2000) and it will not be that difficult to liberate.” (Source: Killen and Associates)
  • What Is the Financial Supply Chain?
    • Financial Supply Chain Management consists of automating and optimizing the order-to-cash cycle for suppliers and the procure-to-pay cycle for customers.
      • Purchase order
      • Invoice and EIPP
      • Credit protection
      • Financing
    “ Financial Supply Chain parallels the physical or materials supply chain and represents all transaction activities related to the flow of cash from the customer’s initial order through reconciliation and payment to the seller.” Killen and Associates, Inc.
