Global trade meant the exchange of physical goods like steel and lumber for decades, but now more of these goods are digital.
In 2016, U.S. exports of ICT-enabled service exports, not including digital goods, totaled $404 billion. (Source: U.S. International Trade Commission, Global Digital Trade 1: Market Opportunities and Key Foreign Trade Restrictions, Publication Number: 4716, Investigation Number: 332-561, August 2017) The U.S. had a trade digitally-enabled service surplus with Europe of $74 billion with $185 billion of exports and $111 billion in imports.
