i2Coalition Urges Congress to Approve USMCA in Joint Letter with other Tech Organizations
The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (the “i2Coalition”) is among the top technology associations urging Congress to approve the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) as soon as possible. The USMCA’s Digital Trade Chapter and other chapters set a new, global standard for rules that will benefit digital trade and e-commerce, and keep North America at the forefront of the global digital economy.
In regards to USMCA, David Snead, co-founder and policy working group chair of the i2Coalition, made the following statement:
The i2Coalition strongly supports passage of the USMCA. The addition of the digital services chapter reflects the administration’s goal to update NAFTA to reflect changes in the economy since NAFTA was negotiated. The digital services chapter reflects U.S. trade priorities that will enhance the ability of U.S. businesses to compete in an increasingly competitive market for Internet services.
The i2Coalition is the voice of those businesses who build the Internet. We represent cloud providers, data centers, domain registrars, registries, web hosts, payment processors, software developers and other foundational Internet enterprises. Along with partner organizations, we help keep the Internet an engine for economic growth and freedom.
