The Global Trade and Market Access Committee considers issues that limit market access, including government regulations or restrictions on technology exports and economic sanctions. CompTIA focuses primarily on trade policies that expand existing export destinations and advocate open new markets for technology companies through bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements, such as Trade Promotion Authority, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
In addition, the committee analyzes legislative and regulatory proposals, responds to requests from Congress and the administration, provides testimony for relevant tax issues and presents CompTIA Membership with networking opportunities with key decision makers.
