CompTIA works to ensure the free and open transfer of data around the world and opposes localization measures and other national security overreaches that pose a threat to the industry. Commitment to international best practices that ensure strong intellectual property rights is a priority, as well as efforts to advance regulatory cooperation for greater market access of technology goods and services around the world.
CompTIA advocates for trade policies that expand export destinations and open new markets for the U.S. technology sector. CompTIA looks for opportunities to enhance the trading relationship in key markets for the industry including the UK, China, India and others. We work to ensure that trade agreements are crafted in such a way that promotes the technology industry and global innovation. We promote digital trade principles before multilateral organizations, including the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and at small and medium sized dialogues. Additionally, we work to address the skills gap in the tech sector as we promote a globally competitive workforce.
