Statement On NAFTA Negotiating Objectives

Washington, DC – Ari Giovenco, Internet Association Director of Trade & International Policy, issued the following statement on USTR’s NAFTA negotiating objectives:

“NAFTA was negotiated before the proliferation of the commercial internet, so it is essential that any renegotiation and modernization effort include strong digital provisions that will help the economy grow. While the internet industry is encouraged that the administration laid out NAFTA objectives that include cross-border data flows and streamlined customs clearance for low value shipments, we look forward to working with negotiators to include key issues like balanced copyright and liability protections for internet services. These protections are essential for internet-enabled American exporters and will ensure that a modernized NAFTA truly embraces the U.S. digital economy.”
