“IA welcomes today’s signing of the U.S.-China Phase One Trade Agreement. This deal will help to limit market access barriers for American internet companies and better protect innovative U.S. intellectual property. We hope this agreement will ultimately result in the easing of harmful tariffs while creating enforceable rules around cyber intrusions, forced technology transfers, and other aspects of China’s intellectual property policy. We look forward to reviewing the final text of the deal to ensure it includes substantive and enforceable commitments to structural changes.”
