Event description

Description

The U.S. is a leader of the internet economy and it has long led efforts to develop international principles, rules and agreements governing digital trade and e-commerce. However, the U.S. is currently not a party to any trade agreement with binding and explicit rules governing digital trade. The U.S. may be left behind as other nations such as Canada, Japan and the EU forge ahead with bilateral, regional, or plurilateral agreements containing comprehensive commitments on digital trade, e-commerce, and/or data.

This event will provide attendees with a broad understanding of U.S. digital trade proposals, how they might affect the U.S. economy, how citizens and policymakers in other nations may see them, and how these provisions may change to match market and technological developments.

With opening remarks by Senator Ron Wyden, our discussion about "What's New in Digital Trade?" will be moderated by Susan Aaronson, GWU Research Professor, CIGI Senior Fellow and Director of the Digital Trade and Data Governance Hub, and our panel will feature:

  • Probir Mehta, Head of Global IP & Trade Policy, Facebook

  • Matthew Reisman, Director of International Trade, Microsoft

  • Serge Shikher, Lead International Economist, Research Division, U.S. International Trade Commission

  • Jayme White, Chief International Competitiveness and Innovation Advisor, Senate Committee on Finance


Complimentary boxed lunch will be provided.


*Note: This event is designed to be widely attended and in compliance with Congressional Ethics rules.
