Associations Outline Priorities for Digital Trade Talks Negotiations at WTO

Washington — The Computer & Communications Industry Association joined 27 trade associations in a joint position paper on how countries can leverage the ongoing discussions among members of the  World Trade Organization to better expand digital trade. The paper includes recommendations on how policies on data flows, data storage and liability can facilitate e-commerce and expand market access. Stakeholders are expected to discuss the WTO e-commerce initiative this week at the WTO Public Forum taking place October 8-11. 

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

“CCIA supports the efforts of countries participating in the e-commerce discussions to secure an agreement that supports efforts to create a strong digital economy benefiting a range of sectors and businesses from traditional companies to more recent innovators. As more companies use the internet to sell products and services around the world, global digital trade rules that set a high standard  will support this increasingly growing sector of countries’ overall economies.”
