China Applies to Join Pact Setting Standards for Digital Trade
What’s new: China has formally applied to join the Digital Economy Partnership Agreement (DEPA) in a bid to boost international cooperation on the digital economy. This follows President Xi Jinping’s announcement in his virtual speech during the G-20 leaders’ summit in Rome.
In a statement on Monday, the Ministry of Commerce said the request (link in Chinese) was made through an official letter from Chinese Commerce Minister Wang Wentao to the New Zealand trade minister.
