Digital Economy Agreement Leadership (DEAL) Group

The Digital Economy Agreement Leadership (DEAL) Group is a global community that seeks to provide balanced resources to parties interested in Digital Economy Agreements (DEAs). The Group aims to create an impartial forum for information exchanges and debates, and contribute to the growth of inclusive and sustainable digital economies around the world. It will have an initial focus on ASEAN in light of its growing digital economy and keen interest in a regional DEA.

The DEAL Group draws upon expertise from governments which have signed DEAs or are interested in signing DEAs, the private sector, civil society and academia to serve as a knowledge resource for policymakers and businesses. The first DEAL Group workshop on “Accelerating ASEAN’s Digital Economy Integration” convened nearly 50 stakeholders in July 2022 to identify digital economy opportunities and challenges, and the role DEAs can play in the region.
