Abstract

The Mode 1 trade in digital services is rapidly expanding, and yet the legal architecture around those services remains relatively thin. States are developing new rules in this policy area, but those efforts are still at an embryonic stage. In this article, we explain how digitalization is affecting the trade in Mode 1 services, how the legal architecture around those services has evolved so far, what states are starting to do to strengthen trade rules on digital services, and what states can do to further promote greater regulatory cooperation around traded digital services.

Keywords: Trade, Services, Digitalization, International Law
