This chapter focuses on electronic communications. It highlights the significance of electronic communication in modern international trade transactions. Unification and harmonization efforts were made to ensure legal framework and legal systems modernize their laws in line with cross-border transactions. The chapter discusses the principle of equality in line with contract formation over electronic communications by referencing the process of offer and acceptance in a website.
