Description

This report presents the outcomes of a virtual public-private dialogue (PPD) held on 26-28 April 2021 attended by speakers and participants from APEC and non-APEC economies. The goal of the PPD was to raise awareness about the value of online dispute resolution; to highlight the benefits it provides to both consumers and micro, small and medium Enterprises (MSMEs); to encourage APEC economies to consider and promote foundational consumer protections afforded by online dispute resolution (ODR) systems, whether established by the private or public sector; and to consider the challenges and promises of emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence, as they pertain to ODR.

The PPD also contributed to the development of a best practices on ODR document for consideration by the APEC members.
