Trade Principles

Trade liberalization is critical to ensuring that the U.S. continues as a global economic leader.  Improved market access for the technology sector is essential to this effort.  TechNet supports:

  • Further reductions in tariff and non-tariff barriers to information and communications technology products, services, and investments.
  • Protections for the free flow of data across borders, strong protections for intellectual property, and safe harbors against intermediary liability.
  • Greater expansion of market access for trade in services, including those that are digitally delivered.
  • Heightened attention to the need for global supply and value chains — particularly important to global innovation — which often are disrupted by government imposition of localization requirements, including forced technology and investment conditions that discriminate against U.S. interests.
  • Customs relief and open payment systems that support digital trade flows, particularly by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
