AIG Global Trade Series 2021 Podcast Episode 6

Digital Transformation: Standards, Taxation, and Global Governance


Digital trade and services have created new trade opportunities and markets. But how do we regulate, tax and set standards for the digital economy? In an environment of increasing geopolitical friction, and under the auspices of national security, is the digital trade arena becoming yet another stage for tensions to play out?
