Prevention of Illegal Drug and Food Entry Through Cross-border E-Commerce

Seeing the increasingly widespread cross-border trade, especially through the E-Commerce platform, last Friday 5 August idEA attended the Literacy agenda for the Prevention of Illegal Drug and Food Importation through Cross-border E-Commerce organized by Sobat Cyber ​​Indonesia. On that occasion, idEA was represented by Virzah Syalvira as Public Policy Analyst.

In her presentation, Virzah conveyed various forms of idEA's commitment as an association that oversees digital industry players and the E-Commerce ecosystem, in preventing the sale and purchase of illegal products digitally. One form of idEA's commitment is to cooperate and sign an MOU with BPOM in the context of monitoring the circulation of drugs and food digitally. In addition to being a bridge between BPOM and platforms, idEA also actively communicates with its members to prevent the circulation of illegal products. idEA believes that monitoring the circulation of illegal drug and food products cannot be carried out by only one party, but there needs to be collaboration and synergy between e-commerce platforms, idEA as an association and related government agencies/institutions.
