EU wants to double online shopping by 2015

BRUSSELS (AFP) - The European Union's (EU) executive arm launched a drive on Wednesday to encourage more people to shop online, hoping to double e-commerce and the Internet's contribution to the economy by 2015. The Internet accounts for less than 3.0 per cent of the EU economy while e-commerce represents just 3.4 per cent of retail sales in the 27-nation bloc, the European Commission said.
