ECIPE in cooperation with SIIA: Understanding the Value of Transatlantic Data Flows
December 04 2014
The most globally significant bilateral trade and investment relationship is between the U.S. and the European Union. An increasing amount of this economic relationship is underpinned by cross-border flows of data.
Whether the U.S. and the EU are able to take full advantage of the opportunities for international trade and investment presented by their increasingly online and digital populations will affect transatlantic economic relations. As the world’s two largest economies, the U.S. and EU decisions on support for cross-border data flows will also have global implications.
ECIPE and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) kindly invite you to a seminar on the importance of cross-border data flows in the Transatlantic trade relationship with:
– Joshua Meltzer, Fellow in Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution
– John Midgley, Head of Global Public Policy at Intuit
– Carl Schonander, Senior Director of International Public Policy at SIIA
– Tilmann Kupfer, Vice-President of Trade & International Affairs at BT
The discussion will feature a presentation of Joshua Meltzer’s recent report on the topic and will be moderated by Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, Director at ECIPE.
