Briefing Held on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The U.S. International Council on Disabilities (USICD) held a briefing on the Hill focused on the impact of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on global commerce and international accessibility.  Each of the panelists agreed that ratification of the CRPD will create global business opportunities, especially in the realm of assistive technology. Creating accessible infrastructures is dependent upon a global exchange of knowledge on disabilities. Both people with disabilities and the U.S. economy would benefit from working together with other countries on innovative accessibility solutions.
