Last week, the US announced that it is withdrawing its longstanding demand for free cross-border data flows and opposition to data localization rules. The arguments for and against are not partisan: Senator Elizabeth Warren said this policy shift is important for regulating big tech, while Senator Ron Wyden noted that it puts US firms at a competitive disadvantage and is “a win for China.”
TPI is hosting a panel discussion to unpack and analyze the implications of this policy shift. Exploring how this change in policy might affect US and foreign firms, the international digital trade landscape, and the broader digital economy. They will also delve into the alignment of this decision with ongoing and future digital trade negotiations and assess its potential global repercussions.
