In an interview with RTE, Dr. Kacper Peeke, director of the European Centre for Research in the Social Sciences at the University of Groningen, said that the ecommerce boom in the EU is unlikely to be sustainable and said that “if it was, I’d be working on a new job”.
Dr. Peeki, who is also the European Commission’s senior policy adviser on innovation and competitiveness, said the EU needs to focus on creating jobs and protecting the economy.
He said that ecommerce is one of the “biggest threats” to the competitiveness of the economy in the bloc.
“We’re talking about a billion jobs,” he said.
“I think we need to look at the e-commerce market as a new sector.
I don’t think the e.commerce boom is a new phenomenon, but it’s very new.”
If you look at a lot of the new sectors in the economy, they’re also not being created or developed by ecommerce, but by other sectors.
“The ecommerce market is currently estimated to have created 1.2 billion jobs in the European Union, with around 2.6 billion of those in the UK, Germany, France and Italy.
According to the research, there are around 4.5 billion e-wallets worldwide, and about a third of those are in the US.
According the eWallets report, the UK is home to the most e-Wallets in Europe with 4.6 million, followed by Germany with 3.7 million and France with 3 million.
France and Germany are the top two e-Commerce destinations in the world, with Germany accounting for more than half of the global market, followed closely by France, Italy and the UK.
