ASR’s policy focus for 2015 includes an international campaign with like-minded organisations around the issues of cross-border data flow and removing unnecessary barriers on the use and flows of this data, especially as the economies of the world become more connected. We are also looking closely at practical efforts to assist services SMEs into the booming Asian markets on our doorstep, with trade missions to Korea and Indonesia, and continuing cooperation with Governments to drive open markets between our trading partners through Free Trade Agreements.

ASR’s President, Vivianne Arnold, explains more about these initiatives in these videos.
