How should we think about data?

We have little information about what data firms collect, how these firms use or sell our data, or how they mix various data types. If we want these markets to operate more equitably and efficiently, policymakers must focus on the governance of data.

What do we do?

We provide resources, training, events, and evidence-based research to help stakeholders understand data governance and digital trade.

Wondering who we are?

We are a team with a diverse background in international trade, economics, public policy, and communication.
