Washington —  The Computer & Communications Industry Association applauds the inclusion of provisions to reduce digital trade barriers in yesterday’s agreement between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The agreement addresses barriers to cross-border data flows and upholds critical protections for online intermediaries.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President and CEO Ed Black:

“This is a key opportunity to set the rules for a modern 21st Century trade agreement with our two strongest trading partners. We applaud inclusion of critical protection for intermediaries to ensure US internet services can be exported around the world. The tech industry is also glad to see the agreement includes a digital trade chapter that removes barriers to cross-border data flows.”
