Whose Rules for the Digital Economy? Shared Visions, Competing Interests

The role that trade rules play in determining business strategy cannot be underestimated. Yet for all the discussions about expectations for emerging technologies to drive growth, the establishment of rules remains an under-explored issue worldwide.

How can international trade rules adequately address the needs of data protection and intellectual property rights on the one hand, while promoting new growth sectors using online platforms? What are the prospects of harmonizing policies and rules, or will divergence over into the digital economy be inevitable? Join us for a discussion on the outlook for digital trade rules with perspectives from Japan, South Korea, and the United States as well as from the software industry.

This event is being hosted jointly with the Korea Economic Institute.
