ECIPE Webinar: Let’s Talk about Trade and Tech

June 29 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Lucian Cernat
Time: 14:00

Join us for a conversation about trade and technology with Lucian Cernat

Trade and Technology are intimately connected. Cloud computing, Internet of Things, blockchain, 3D printing, remote sensors, artificial intelligence, big data, cybersecurity, telematics, robotics, or e-health are an integral part of everyone’s life and a critical issue for policy-makers. As an example, the EU and US just launched a Trade and Technology Council that will cover topics ranging from supply chains to technology standards. A conversation about Trade and Technology is urgently needed not just because of substantial rapid technological change, but because the global trading system relies on global trade rules written in the 1990s that are no longer fit for purpose.

– What is the role of technology in trade policy? And how does trade policy impact technological development?

– How will technologies change the way businesses buy and sell goods and services across borders?

– And how will these technologies change the balance between trade in tangible and intangibles?
