Aspen Panel - Data and Trade

 Register Here for TPI Aspen Forum, August 17 - 19


For Immediate Release

Digital goods and services represent an increasingly large part of the U.S. and global economies and are only just beginning to be considered in the context of international trade. While digital trade can be an important component of economic growth, a thriving future is not guaranteed. Policies like data localization laws, internet governance rules that affect how data flows around the globe, and potential mistrust created by intrusive government surveillance, to name a few, can all act as digital trade barriers. The panel "Data and Trade" at this year's TPI Aspen Forum assembles a group of experts on trade and data flows to explore these issues and the future of digital trade.


Confirmed panelists are:


  • Hon. Meredith Broadbent, Chairman, U.S. International Trade Commission
  • Anupam Chander, Director, California International Law Center, Professor of Law, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Hall Research Scholar, University of California, Davis
  • Michael Mandel, Chief Economic Strategist, Progressive Policy Institute
  • Joshua Meltzer, Fellow, Global Economy and Development, The Brookings Institution
  • Matthew Perault, Head of Global Policy Development, Facebook


The discussion will be moderated by Scott Wallsten, TPI Vice President for Research and Senior Fellow.


An updated TPI Aspen Forum agenda is available and registration can be performed on the TPI website. For additional information, please contact Jane Creel at  Members of the press can contact Amy Smorodin at for complimentary registration.
