Trade system and the digital economy—2017 inquiry
Services are becoming digitised, and 3D printing, Industry 4.0 and other emerging technologies will see the same thing happen to goods.
As goods and services are digitised, it is essential that governments keep up. They must understand new trading methods and the value traded through those methods.
Technology is also enabling new products and services. Business models that were until recently impossible are now mainstream. But policies and regulations have failed to adapt. International trading rules remain geared towards traditional goods exports, with no effective regime to govern digital trade.
Regulators are struggling to find the right balance in response to digital trade: in some instances, they are stifling innovation and competition, in others they are failing to protect consumers.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
