英国贸易谈判代表在即将举行的美国贸易谈判中,关注区块链条款

2020-3-12 15:01

 

根据英国公布的谈判目标,英国贸易谈判代表希望在即将与美国举行的自由贸易谈判中影响全球区块链规则国际贸易部(DIT)。


该计划直截了当,其所谓的“机遇”也很明确。在英国3月2日发布的长达184页的行动计划中英国退欧后的贸易经纪人表示,将“寻求”为包括区块链在内的中小型企业提供优惠的数字贸易条款。


该文件指出:“在数据流、区块链、无人驾驶汽车和量子技术等领域,我们有机会通过雄心勃勃的数字贸易条款帮助塑造全球规则。”


该文件没有提供任何实际细节,DIT也拒绝在谈判前详细说明其谈判立场。这些讨论在英国脱欧后变得更加重要,尤其是考虑到英国该公司已经与美国建立了密切的贸易关系


智能合同API公司条款的首席执行官Peter Hunn说,一项协议可能对区块链空间有利。


他说:“在使用DLT系统和智能合同代码提供标准化接口方面,可以做很多工作,从而减少管理、财务和遵从性负担。”


DIT似乎已经把在未来的框架内建立一个强大的数字贸易伙伴关系放在了首位。谈判目标中有整整一章涉及“数字贸易”,其中包括数据保护、开放的互联网和跨境数据流等问题。


据一份附带的新闻稿称,由于预计技术将迅速发展,英国寻求“在未来证明该协议的可靠性”。


一些人呼吁在报告中加强跨境密码合作。在一份包含的附录中,概述了2018年夏季举行的DIT的贸易协定公众评论期,据说一些“商业协会”游说DIT加强金融科技的联系。

 

The United Kingdom's trade negotiators want to influence global blockchain regulation in its upcoming free trade talks with the United States, according to the negotiating objectives released by the U.K.’s Department for International Trade (DIT).

 

The plan is straightforward and the “opportunity,” as DIT called it, is clear. In its 184-page action plan released March 2, U.K.’s post-Brexit trade broker said it will “seek to deliver” favorable digital trade terms for small to midsize businesses, including those in blockchain. 

 

“In areas such as data flows, blockchain, driverless cars and quantum technology we have the opportunity to help shape global rules through ambitious digital trade provisions,” the document states.

 

The document did not provide any actual details, and DIT declined to elaborate on its negotiating stance ahead of the talks. Such discussions have taken on heightened importance post-Brexit, especially given the U.K.’s already close trading ties with the U.S.

 

Peter Hunn, CEO of the smart contracts API firm Clause, said a deal could be beneficial for the blockchain space. 

 

“There is a lot that can be done here to provide standardized interfaces using DLT systems and smart contract code that reduce administration, financial and compliance burdens,” he said.

 

DIT appears to have prioritized striking a strong digital trading partnership within its coming framework. An entire chapter of the negotiating objectives deal with “digital trade” including data protection, an open internet and cross-border data flows, among other issues.

 

The U.K. seeks to “future-proof the agreement in anticipation of rapid technological developments,” according to an accompanying press release.

 

There are some calls for closer cross-border crypto partnerships within the report. In an included appendix that summarizes the DIT’s trade agreement public comment period, held in summer 2018, some “business associations” are said to have lobbied DIT for closer fintech ties.
