Expansion of IT trade agreement would create 60,000 new jobs


A study published by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF) says an expansion to a 15 year old IT trade agreement could bring huge benefits to the US economy, including about 60,000 new jobs.

Adding new products to the 1996 Information Technology Agreement, could also increase US exports of information and communications technology by as much as $2.8 billion and could boost revenues of US IT firms by as much as $10 billion the report says.
