Over the past years, there has been a slow economic growth throughout the world. Global exchange, in particular, is helped by digital technologies, mediated by an important information resource - the Internet. The Internet is one of the basic assets that provides an efficient exchange of resources, data and money, and is already inseparable for most social processes, including for trade. Despite the restrictions that are imposed on the economy in connection with the use of digital technologies, new technologies carry great advantages for the development and growth of the economy. The purpose of this article is to analyze these advantages, as well as to forecast further dynamics of developments regarding the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services, including the process that mediates these stages of creating an additional product - electronic commerce. In addition, it shows how the European Union copes with the task of developing digital technologies for the effective development of the digital economy and trade.
