                    General Information:

                    Business analysts will rub shoulders with aspiring
                    technology tycoons at "Electronic Commerce Europe
                    99", the European Forum for Electronic Business
                    Communication's (EEMA) annual conference and
                    exhibition. This event, to be held in Paris from 9
                    to 11 June 1999, will focus on the key business
                    and technology issues facing organisations as they
                    implement e-commerce strategies. Participants will
                    be shown how analysts' predictions that over
                    US$426 million of consumer goods will be traded
                    across the Internet in 2002 might be met and even

                    Representatives from leading organisations,
                    including Informix, Lotus Development, and
                    Microsoft, will attend the event, which will focus
                    on XML, which some are hailing as the next
                    generation web language. 

                    Other topics to be discussed at this event

                    - Standardisation; 
                    - The challenges surrounding the year 2000; 
                    - European issues including the introduction of
                    the euro and the latest news on e-commerce
                    initiatives, messaging and directory standards; -
                    A keynote focussing on electronic trading into the
                    21st century; - Security implications as companies
                    adopt more open systems and relationships. 

                    The event organisers are expecting it to attract
                    senior decision-makers from throughout Europe to
                    hear about e-business topics close to their
                    business needs. Gerard Santucci will represent the
                    European Commission's DG XIII, and will focus on
                    the implications of e-commerce for the financial
                    markets and public sectors respectively.
