On November 9, 2015, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced its Digital Economy Agenda, which is focused around four key opportunities:
- Promoting a free and open Internet worldwide, because the Internet functions best for our businesses and workers when data and services can flow unimpeded across borders.
- Promoting trust online, because security and privacy are essential if electronic commerce is to flourish.
- Ensuring access for workers, families, and companies, because fast broadband networks are essential to economic success in the 21st century.
- Promoting innovation, through smart intellectual property rules and by advancing the next generation of exciting new technologies.
