International trade is vital to the consumer technology sector in the U.S. and global economies. Unfair trade practices should be addressed at the World Trade Organizaton, not by taxing U.S. businesses with increased tariffs. 

America's trade policies should:

  • Focus on international market access;
  • Remove tariff and non-tariff barriers;
  • Restrict forced localization of data and data flows; and
  • Have a balanced approach to copyright, limitations and liabilities

As Congress and the White House address unfair trade practices – including China's intellectual property theft and passing the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) – they must consider the economic impact of barriers to trade on American jobs and companies. Tariffs are a tax on the internet could cost 1 million U.S. jobs.
