          • Trade and Innovation: India's and China's Diverse Experiences with the Information Technology Agreement

            The Information Technology Agreement (ITA), an important plurilateral trade agreement, is widely expected to facilitate the diffusion of innovation in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry. Proponents emphasize that developing countries could reap significant gains from trade for innovation from the ITA, as tariff reduction will lower import prices, improve market access for exporters, and enhance competition. This optimistic outlook assumes that each country meets certain preconditions and capacities; in reality results have varied. Recent research has shown that the success or failure of trade liberalization is determined by the economic structure of a country (institutions; market size and structure; managerial and technological capabilities of firms), and that integration into global networks of production and innovation may also significantly affect a country's approach to and experience with trade liberalization. In his talk, Dr. Ernst compared the diverse experiences of India and China with the Information Technology Agreement (ITA). Two main questions are addressed: Why has China's electronics industry benefited substantially from the ITA, while in India, gains from trade liberalization were overshadowed by major costs that are eroding domestic electronic manufacturing and innovation? And to what degree are domestic economic structures and global network integration useful to explain these different experiences, and the very different approaches to the current impasse in negotiations to expand the product coverage of ITA? Dr. Dieter Ernst is a Senior Fellow at the East-West Center. He is an authority on global production networks and the internationalization of research and development in high-tech industries, focusing on standards and intellectual property rights. His research examines corporate innovation strategies and innovation policies in the United States and in China, India, Malaysia, Taiwan and Korea. He has served as a member of the United States National Academies "Committee on Global Approaches to Advanced Computing"; senior advisor to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Paris; research director of the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy at the University of California at Berkeley; professor of international business at the Copenhagen Business School; and scientific advisor to governments, private companies, and international institutions.

Carnevale (39:27) join Michael Fix (10:06) and Margie McHugh (28:31), Co-Directors of MPI’s National Center on Immigrant Immigration Policy, to discuss findings from the MPI report, Still an Hourglass? Immigrant Workers in Middle-Skilled Jobs. The moderator is MPI President Demetrios Papademetriou. The report, which examines immigrant employment in the US workforce overall and four key sectors (IT, health care, construction, and hospitality), finds that the fastest growth in immigrant employment since 2000 has occurred in middle-skilled jobs.
