Please join the ICC, NFTC and USCIB for a discussion among senior diplomats, business leaders and policy experts on the impact of localization measures on international trade.
While companies and individuals increasingly rely on engagement in the global marketplace, new obstacles to doing business in the digital age are emerging in the form of "localization" barriers. Driven by an understandable desire to capture as many gains from the global economy as possible, localization barriers are increasingly affecting a variety of industries, from information technologies to business services to advanced manufacturing. This discussion will identify the challenge localization barriers pose, describe the extent of the issue and trends in public policy, and explore how to promote innovation, economic development, and job growth in the modern world.
