I was recently involved in an interesting discussion about ecommerce in the UK. Reference was made to a report recently posted to the website of the office for national statistics. This report summarises ecommerce activity in the UK in 2009, the last year for which statistics were available. This report (of which a pdf version is attached) shows that the total value of ecommerce to the UK was in excess of £400billion in the year 2009. Apparently a third of all of the e-commerce carried out in Europe is now
conducted in the UK and we arenumber one in the world for e-commerce spend on a per capita basis. I googled “E-commerce in Scotland” which took me to this link There you will see that our official website for learning skills has only a couple of courses on offer for e-commerce but no fewer than seven for belly dancing – yes really – read the article yourself!
