WORLD E-COMMERCE LEADERS GATHER FOR INAUGURAL CONFERENCE

The world's leading e-commerce agencies and authorities, including the
UN,
WTO, OECD, US Federal Trade Commission and others are to gather for
their
inaugural World E-Com conference in Australia. World E-Com 1999 will be
hosted by the Western Australian (WA) Government and held on 8th, 9th
and
10th November. Invitations to send representatives to participate as
speakers at the conference have been accepted by (in alphabetical
order):

Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation forum (APEC)
Attorney General, Commonwealth of Australia
British Airways
Canadian Federal Government
The Economist
European Commision (EC)
International Commerce Exchange (ICX)
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
Unisys Corporation
United Nations (UNCITRAL)
US Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
University of Hamburg
World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)
World Trade Organisation (WTO)

Steering Committee Chairman, David Rose said: "The internet is no longer
the
exclusive domain of the technocrat and e-commerce high-flyer. It is now
impacting on strategic decisions taken in boardrooms and government
offices
around the world.

"World E-Com 1999, which is the first in a new annual series of
strategic
conferences, delivers the high level briefing that established
corporations
and government departments are demanding. The need for this conference
has
also been recognised by the UN, OECD, EC, WTO and other leading
e-commerce
authorities and agencies."

The WA Government believes it unlikely that such an authoritative
e-commerce
speaker faculty will be assembled again in the foreseeable future.

Delegates now registering at the World E-Com website at www.we-co.org
are
CEO's and senior Board level directors from major corporations, and
senior
government executives from all regions of the world. Management
disciplines
range across marketing, finance, IT, distribution and others. The
conference
is designed to deliver critical intelligence to established corporations
and
government departments formulating e-commerce strategies at the regional
and
global levels.

Presentations will cover the legal, technology fundamentals,
intellectual
property, trading agreement, regulatory, skillset and other issues
affecting
e-commerce, and the budgets that are being assigned to it. This will be
supported by reviews of two major e-commerce projects undertaken by
long-established companies.
