FORCED LOCALIZATION

FORCED LOCALIZATION


Technological innovation has driven growth and revolutionized all economic sectors, creating unimagined goods and services and offering new opportunities for companies large and small.

In response to the rapid and profound changes brought about by technology, some governments have implemented forced localization policies essentially, policies that require part or all of companies’ business operations to take place within their borders in an effort to promote economic growth, advance privacy and security, or protect local firms and industries.

Such policies are misguided, however; they impose significant negative impacts on economies by increasing the costs of doing business, diverting trade and investment, distorting markets, undermining security, and discouraging innovation.

LCA leads efforts to inform and engage governments around the world on the dangers of forced localization policies, while working with them to implement more effective options for achieving their public policy objectives.
