Technology

Technology is the thread that runs through a competitive economy, driving multiple and diverse industries and impacting myriad policy issues that are vital to commerce and communication. Technology-based industries and businesses create tremendous growth and opportunity in the U.S. economy and are essential to competing in an interconnected world. Outdated laws and regulations impede U.S. technological innovation and deployment. The U.S. Chamber promotes market-based solutions, policies that foster investment in technology research and deployment, and balanced regulatory treatment of technical platforms.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) yesterday submitted comments to the Department of Commerce’s (DoC) National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) calling on the DoC to support the Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things (DIGIT) Act in Congress, a bill that would ensure that stakeholders are engaged with the government on issues surrounding the internet of things (IoT). The comments also warn the NTIA against creating new regulations that would inhibit IoT development.

Letter

Dear Chairman Thune and Ranking Member Nelson,

We, the undersigned organizations and trade associations, thank the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee for holding its oversight hearing of the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) and congratulate Commissioner Ajit Pai on his designation as Chairman.

We oppose the FCC's midnight Broadband Privacy Rule, which was adopted just days before last year’s election, and urge Congress to use the Congressional Review Act (“CRA”) to disapprove this innovation-inhibiting regulation.

Press Release

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today released two reports on best practices for privacy regulators and the economic impact of cross-border information and communications technology (ICT) services. The first report reveals $1.72 trillion in global GDP gains that could result from reducing market and regulatory barriers to cross-border ICT services. The second report highlights best practices for global data protection authorities (DPAs) that will contribute to effective data protection governance.

Report

This report uses a model to quantify the economic impact of full liberalisation of cross-border ICT services rules globally by creating an open, competitive marketplace. The report examines a group of eight globally important markets from a diverse range of economic development, including Brazil, the European Union, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Nigeria, Turkey, and Vietnam. Our findings demonstrate across the board benefits.
