How to make progress on digital trade negotiations?
Digital trade has the potential to support an inclusive economic recovery, but cross-border data flow restrictions and other barriers limit that potential. So do divergent regulations across countries. Greater transparency on trade restrictions, as well as negotiations on digital commerce, can help leverage the benefits of the digital economy. The new Digital Policy Alert, which provides up-to-date information on policies affecting cross-border digital commerce, can help inform digital trade negotiations.
