The Digital Economy After Doha?

November 15 2011
Venue: CHANGE OF VENUE: Finland's Permanent Representation to the EU, Rue de Trèves 100, B-1040 Bruxelles
Speakers: Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 12:30

In our series of seminars ahead of the WTO Ministerial Conference in December, we look at the WTO IT Agreement, a sector agreement that many consider as the template for future work in the WTO.

Yet the ITA itself is in need of an update: since its conclusion in 1996, the industry has been transformed by ever faster cycles of innovation, rise of the internet and the emerging economies have come to dominate the ICT supply chains and services trade – in a time of cloud computing, technology trade is still governed by the rules drafted for VHS tapes. 

Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, Director at ECIPE, has proposed expanding the ITA into a new International Digital Economy Agreement (IDEA). 

What further liberalisation is necessary to make WTO relevant for the digital economy? 

What are the learnings of the ITA for the other sectors? 

ECIPE cordially invites you to a discussion on the future of WTO and digital trade.

RSVP by November 14

A sandwich lunch will be served.
