In testimony before the U.S. House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, Robert Atkinson argued that the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement represents the best opportunity to establish high-standard rules that will permit digital trade—the lifeblood of the modern global economy—to flourish to the maximum extent possible. Furthermore, the United States should view this agreement as a building block toward stronger and more comprehensive rules for digital trade and data flows in future pacts, including the Trade in Services Agreement and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
