SINGAPORE (Oct 24): Singapore is looking to lead digital trade efforts at the World Trade Organization through a Joint Statement Initiative (JSI) on e-commerce, says S Iswaran, Minister in-charge of Trade Relations.

Under this initiative, Singapore will “support the development of baseline rules on digital trade and act as a bulwark against digital fragmentation,” he says.

Speaking at the opening of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) Symposium on Wednesday, Iswaran notes that the Digital Economy Agreements will also look into emerging areas such as artificial intelligence and digital identities.
