The digital economy is one of the new 21st century issues that negotiators from the 12 countries participating in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks are hammering out in their discussions. They are working to ensure information flows, consumer protection, authentication of electronic transactions, and fair customs duties in the environment.
The key indicator for whether the United States will be economically engaged in the Asia Pacific region this year will be the completion of the TPP. Leadership on trade and the economic aspect of United States involvement in the region has never been more important.
CSIS is committed to exploring and promoting the policy dynamic surrounding these issues through the continuation of its 2012 TPP Initiative. As a continuing part of the 2013 Trans-Pacific Partnership Speaker Series, CSIS is proud to be hosting a morning conference on key digital economy issues that will be included and addressed in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.
