UNCTAD mentions that measuring e-commerce is a prerequisite for understanding its economic role and contribution to GDP, employment, and development, as well as for evidence-based policymaking. Beyond total e-commerce, the distinction between domestic and cross-border e-commerce is important to understand to what extent e-commerce contributes to exports and imports. The UNCTAD Secretariat has received various enquiries from countries asking for guidance and support to measure the monetary value of e-commerce and digitally ordered trade.

WCO News 102 — Issue 3 / 2023 Dossier: Focus on the port environment

Bulgaria has been a fully-fledged Member State of the European Union (EU) since 1 January 2007 and exerts controls over one of the external maritime borders of the EU with the Black Sea, in accordance with EU Customs policies. The number of inbound and outbound container units going through its largest maritime port, the Port of Varna, has grown steadily over the past 10 years (see Figure 1) but represents a minor part of the flows of goods entering or leaving the European Union through its maritime borders. Most goods entering Bulgaria by sea are released for internal circulation or are in transit to neighbouring EU countries. Transboundary movements to non-EU countries and transshipment operations are an exception.
