The Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) is an international agreement currently being negotiated by countries representing 75 percent of global trade in services to liberalize trade in services, including finance, investment, insurance, legal services, and other emerging issues such as restrictions on cross-border data flows that can disrupt financial and e-commerce services. The negotiating countries recently agreed to hold four more rounds of negotiations in an effort to conclude the agreement by July 2016. Come hear two leading experts on TiSA and the lead U.S. negotiator on TiSA, fresh from the November/ December negotiating round focused on financial services in Geneva, discuss and answer questions on the major outstanding issues.

This “Off the Record” luncheon program is sponsored by the International Investment and Finance Committee of the D.C. Bar International Law Section. Cosponsored by the International Securities Law Committee of the Corporation, Finance and Securities Section, the International Dispute Resolution Committee of the International Law Section, the International Trade Committee of the International Law Section, the American Bar Association International Trade Committee and the Virginia State Bar International Practice Section.
