Advancing the Digital Economy
The International Communications and Information Policy (CIP) division enables a connected, innovative, and secure digital economy that reflects the United States’ collective interests and values. We promote competitive and secure networks, including 5G, and protect telecom services and infrastructure through licensing, sanctions enforcement, and supply chain security. We support a multi-stakeholder approach to Internet governance, international technical standards that promote an innovative digital economy and the trustworthy use of related emerging technologies. We encourage cross-border data flows as well as the protection of privacy and personal data. CIP partners with U.S. businesses, civil society, and foreign governments and promotes U.S. leadership on digital issues in multilateral institutions to achieve these goals.
