The Internet and digitalisation are fundamentally changing the way people, businesses and governments interact, including across borders. The growing importance of what is commonly referred to as ‘digital trade’ and the emergence of new (and disruptive) players has resulted in increased interest from within the statistics community and amongst policy makers for the development of a statistical framework that captures these phenomenons.This paper aims to address these various policy demands, building on existing efforts to advance the development of a conceptual and measurement framework for digital trade; with explicit reference to key policy questions surrounding digital trade; drawing in particular from the OECD WPTGS 2017 Stocktaking Questionnaire.
