Transatlantic digital connections have become the backbone of the $5.5 trillion transatlantic economy. They enable fast cross-border delivery of a variety of services that were once considered non-tradable. Yet is difficult to measure or define the digital economy’s impact on trade and innovation.
The Transatlantic Digital Economy 2017: How and Why it Matters for the United States, Europe and the World, fills this gap. The study is the first of its kind to measure and assess the importance of the digital connections binding the US and Europe. It offers a Top Ten set of metrics of US-EU digital links and addresses current challenges, as well as future opportunities.
