Digital Trade under CPTPP and Implications for the United Kingdom

International Economics Consulting Ltd has submitted written evidence on key considerations regarding Digital Trade and the UK’s Accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). This is an area of increasing importance for UK companies, more specifically for UK SMEs who might be best placed to benefit from a strong digital trade framework with the CPTPP Partners. By joining the CPTPP, as with any agreement, the UK would face some policy trade-offs. While the CPTPP is narrower than the UK’s stated digital policy aims, it is expected to provide an opportunity to push forward innovation, as well as to promote standards on ethics and good governance in the digital arena.
