Round-table discussion on electronic commerce

The Teledom Hotel in Kosice was the venue on Tuesday of last week for a round-table meeting of specialists, attended by USSK Vice-president Information Technology Peter Richardson, on the topic of Electronic Commerce - the proper route to successful business? This event, which brought together representatives of specialist associations and managers of important companies and organizations in Eastern Slovakia, was organized in our city for the second time following last year's success by the Slovak Association for Electronic Commerce (SAEC).
The principal sponsor of the round-table session was U. S. Steel Kosice, and one lecture was presented by a representative of the Company - Replacement Parts Purchasing Manager Lubomir Sekel.
