New Information Technology Agreement

 

The original WTO Information Technology Agreement — or ITA — was agreed in 1996.

It was an innovative agreement, boosting trade in an important emerging sector.

Since 1996 exports in products covered by that agreement have more than tripled in value.

But, of course, since then new products and technologies have continued to emerge at a phenomenal rate, and this sector has continued to evolve.

This is why, in July this year, this group of WTO members agreed to expand the original ITA by eliminating tariffs on an additional 201 IT products, including:

  • a new generation of semi-conductors
  • GPS navigation systems
  • tools for manufacturing printed circuits
  • telecommunications satellites
  • touch screens,
  • and some state-of-the-art medical products.

20 years ago, most of these products simply did not exist. Today, they are commonplace. This expanded agreement aims to respond to this new reality.
