The White Paper examines trends and needs in the global digital economy, and the emerging set of international trade agreement rules currently under negotiation to govern world trade in the digital economy. It seeks to define the needs of the global economy, the requirements to service those needs by the global ICT industry, and the position of Huawei as a leading ICT company operating in over 170 countries and providing goods and services along almost the entire length of the global digital value chain. It recommends that non‐discrimination, open markets, and fair competition should be fundamental rules for the global digital economy, whereas any exception to these rules should be adopted subject to the principles of transparency, proportionality, necessity, and multi‐stakeholder consultation.
