Trade and Regulation in a Digital Economy
organized by
Government of Sweden
 
 
E-Commerce Week 2016

An exploration of how trade and production take place today and how (and where) data flows are at the heart of this, including a comparison of traditional descriptions of trade with more modern versions - where platforms and digital solutions are included in the exchange.

A presentation of how data flows are essential also for the production of the good that is traded, including possible effects on developing countries and SMEs.

A discussion of the importance of domestic regulation, including potential negative spill-over effects on trading partners, and possible approaches in a post-Nairobi context, including WTO's potential role, given the new trading realities of the digital economy.
