WEBCAST MAR 19 – The WTO’s Digital Trade Negotiations in the Wake of its 13th Ministerial Conference. Clion on this link to access it.

I attended the following remotely on Tuesday March 19, 2024, at 11:00-12:30 EDT the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, as part of its Global Digital Governance series, which presented a webinar ‘The WTO’s Digital Trade Negotiations in the Wake of its 13th Ministerial Conference‘. I found it interesting, hence my desire to share with you all.

For those who don’t follow The World Trade Organization activities, there is a serious debate to respond to the proliferation of national restrictions and trade barriers in the global digital economy. The largely failed 13th Ministerial Conference that concluded on March 2, 2024 barely managed in its last hour to extend the moratorium on customs duties on electronic transmissions until 2026.

The session is simulcast live under the auspices of the Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY).
