In 2015, the European Commission unveiled the Digital Single Market strategy, making the growth of the digital economy an important priority for Europe. Ecommerce sales in Europe reached €455.3 billion in 2015, up 13.3% from the previous year. Yet currently just 15% of Europeans buy online from

another EU country.

What does this mean for U.S. exporters?

Join the eCommerce Innovation Lab and the U.S. Commercial Service in Europe, in partnership with the Getting to Global initiative and the Global Retail Insights Network (the GRIN Labs),as we explore the implications of the EU Digital Market Strategy for U.S. exporters. Over the course of the series,

European-based expert speakers will provide insight on several key facets of digital commerce, including policies and trends to make digital marketing, shipping and logistics and online payments more consistent across European countries. Bigpicture

e-commerce trends will be explored alongside practical

advice from successful U.S. vendors and experts.

May 9 Webinar: EU's Digital Single Market

The first webinar will explore the following questions:

? To what extent is e-commerce in Europe a single market for U.S. exporters?

? What are the must-know tips for U.S. firms when it

comes to cross-border e-commerce in Europe?

? What are the top online retail sites in Europe and how are they segmented?

? How will Brexit impact e-commerce in the region?
