This contribution was delivered on 5 May 2022 on the occasion of the hybrid 2022 edition of EUI State of the Union on ‘A Europe fit for the next generation?' Digitalisation offers small firms in Europe and the rest of the world the prospect of engaging in international trade, either as part of a global value chain (B2B) or providing services to consumers directly (B2C). Different models of regulation of digital trade have emerged around the world, resulting in a fragmentation of rules which can potentially impact costs and the ability of firms and consumers to sell (and buy) digital products and online services across borders. The session will draw on the ongoing Digital Trade Integration Project, a CIVICA research project led by the EUI, that collects information on digital trade regulation, exploring options to overcome regulatory fragmentation, including negotiation of digital partnership agreements and regulatory equivalence mechanisms.
