RD379 - WTO Review of the Information Technology Agreement
The ITA needs a revision and ETNO supports such evolution. ETNO members welcome an ITA expansion. ETNO’s position is to recommend the start of negotiations promptly, with a view to rapid conclusion and implementation.
- In 1996, 14 WTO members signed the Information Technology Agreement (ITA), an important deal that aimed to the elimination of import duties on ICT equipment.
