U.S. Chamber Report Says ICT Security Regulations Limit Trade

September 2, 2016, Inside U.S. Trade

Gina Vetere is quoted in an Inside U.S. Trade article regarding the U.S. Chamber of Commerce report that details the potential impact of ICT security regulations on trade. According to Vetere, overly broad government policies requiring that ICT products be produced domestically potentially violate most-favored nation and national treatment provisions included in various World Trade Organization agreements, including the General Agreement on Trade in Services, and a slew of bilateral and multilateral trade deals. She adds that trade agreements often include exemptions for legitimate policies, such as national security, but nations can push back using anti-discrimination provisions such as most-favored nation or national treatment if another party applies an exemption too broadly.
