Access Partnership’s Director for Asia, May-Ann Lim, will take part in “E-Commerce Terminology for Trade Policy Negotiators” webinar on 28 July at 13:00-15:00 CEST, hosted by the Geneva Trade Platform.
This event will feature private sector experts from leading technology firms helping to define and answer any questions on some of the critical technical terms used in trade negotiations, and how trade policy has historically addressed them.
The webinar will form the basis of a subsequent free e-learning course hosted on the Beyond Trade Network through which negotiators past and present will be able to quickly refresh themselves on these key technical terms, their meanings, trade policy implications, and where further information on them can be found.
During the webinar, we will aim to cover the following terms:
- E-Signatures and E-Authentication
- Electronic Payments
- Paperless Trading
- The E-Commerce Moratorium
- De Minimis for Tariffs and Taxes
- Source Code and Algorithms
- Online Consumer Protection
- Data Flows and Data Protection
- Open Internet Access
- Open Government Data
