On 04 Apr 2007 the OIC became aware of a network of more than 90 Community Organisations AFTINET concerned with the social implications of Free Trade Agreements [FTAs].
A Review of the material on the AFTINET website indicates that the AFTINET members are not aware of the eCommerce technical issues of the Free Trade Agreements particularly Chapter 15: Government Procurement and Chapter 16: Electronic Commerce
As a combined team of OASIS, ebXML Australia and OIC members confirmed on 22 Dec 2006 that the complex address version of the Australian eCommerce Standard AS4590 would resolve the conflicts with AS4590 and UNCEFACT (aka EDIFACT), this information will be shared with AFTINET members.
In addition as OIC members are developing applications based on the complex address version of AS4590 as the Name & Address format for Information Economy Transactions this will be made available to AFTINET members.
The first Community applications based on the complex address version of AS4590 are the Junior Sports Information System [JSIS] and the Kids Safe-at-Sport Network [KSAS-Au]
This applications will be the cornerstones of the Local Information Economy applications discussed with the Hon Jennifer RANKINE MP SA Minister for Consumer Affairs The Webinar on Fri 27 Apr 2007 will review the synergies between AFTINET and the OIC Technical Expertise with eCommerce, Free Trade Agreements and Local Information Economy Network transactions
