Digital Economy

On November 9, 2015, the Secretary of Commerce unveiled the Department of Commerce’s new Digital Economy Agenda, which will help businesses and consumers realize the potential of the digital economy to advance growth and opportunity.  The Agenda focuses on four key objectives: promoting a free and open Internet worldwide; promoting trust online; ensuring access for workers, families, and companies; and promoting innovation. 

To support the Agenda, the Secretary of Commerce has directed the creation of a Digital Economy Board of Advisors to enable the Department to have a mechanism for receiving regular advice from leaders in industry, academia, and civil society.
