Season 2, Episode 1: What is the future of NZ-US digital trade?
In this episode we include a simple explanation of digital trade and the emerging global rule set on digital trade.

Included is Stephanie Honey of Honey Consulting, a leading expert on digital trade here in New Zealand.

She provides one of the clearest descriptions I’ve heard of what of digital trade is, what it includes, and some of the complications for business trying to decipher what rules to apply.

The next episode takes this a little further considering why should we be looking to do a digital trade agreement with the United States and what’s the best current agreement vehicle available for doing this.
