ESOA hosts a reception for TiSA negotiators in Geneva




1 February 2016

ESOA welcomed around 60 policy trade negotiators in a cocktail reception that was held in Geneva on Monday 1 February and discussed the ongoing TISA negotiations in the context of satellite communications services.

The satellite sector is a truly global and dynamic innovative industry for which the importance of international free trade in services should not be underestimated. Satellites play a key role in the growth of global communications, media and technology industries. During these years, satellite communications grew to a €100 billion industry, enabling essential breakthroughs in modern communications such as live television from remote regions, the broadcasting of high definition TV channels to all citizens, broadband connectivity in all areas, backhauling for telecom operators or highly reliable data networks for private companies. Therefore the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) is hugely important to our sector for an open market where the best communications services are available worldwide.
