Dept. of Commerce Hosts e-Business Conference

The U.S. Department of Commerce is co-organizing and will host a conference featuring leaders from industry, academia and government on Sept. 26 and 27 to discuss the economic impact of the Internet and other information technologies on the U.S. and the world. Much of the first day will examine how e-business leads to new products and services, lowers costs, and changes the terms of competition in each of eleven major industrial sectors, including autos, financial services, media, health care, trucking and education. The second day will feature discussions of the challenges of economic assessment, privacy, and the impact of policy issues such as intellectual property protection, and open access, on economic activity. In addition to the Department of Commerce, conference organizers include the Brookings Institution, the Organization for Economic Cooperation in Development (based in Paris), the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy and the Internet Policy Institute. To register, contact Alicia Dorsey at adorsey@brook.edu or 202-797-6131 The conference has an admission charge of $35 for each of the two days.
