This dossier offers articles covering aspects that follow the links between international trade and digital transformation.

It aims to document further assumptions about the shift toward digitisation of goods and services and the way it has impacted global trade, and how increased connectivity is changing the cross-border flows of goods and services (including data).

Interviews gathered from Professor GRIMES (Emeritus Professor, NUI Galway) and that of A.H. MAMDOUH (Director of the Trade in Services division of the WTO) provide additional angles to some of the issues addressed in this issue of the Journal.
