Clean Network Overview

The Clean Network of Trusted Partnership

The Clean Network (CN) is comprised of like-minded countries, companies, and civil society that operates by a set of trust principles for all areas of collaboration. It is an alliance of democracies built on the idea that strong partnerships advance shared prosperity. By harnessing the innovation, resources and synergies of its members, the CN creates a unifying and equitable global framework for trusted geo-economic partnerships.

The CN partnerships are grounded in democratic values and shared Trust Principles that form the basis of trust: integrity, accountability, transparency, reciprocity and respect for the rule of law, property, and sovereignty. These Trust Principles which form the basis for sector and industry specific Trust Standards will enable fast, frictionless, and secure collaboration in areas critical to our shared future.

Lines of Collaboration – A Network of Networks

The Clean Network is a collection of networks that consists of multiple forms and lines of economic collaboration organized by sectors, regions and industries. Forms of collaboration include commerce, investment, supply, chains, money flows, research, safeguarding assets, research, logistics, procurement, trade, policy, and standards. The lines of collaboration include sectors such as energy, healthcare, digital, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, minerals, infrastructure, finance, space and security.

The CN also creates a global umbrella network for existing regional initiatives such as the Indo-Pacific Strategy, Transatlantic Partnership, 3 Seas Initiative, EU-Asia Connectivity Initiative and American CRECE.

Strength Through Shared Principles and Solidarity

Some but not all the networks that comprise the CN have or are evolving structures by which countries, companies and civil society organizations may join. Opportunities will surface through establishment of traditional diplomatic partnerships (bi-laterals, tri-laterals and multi-laterals), agreements such as those related to economic development, direct foreign investment, trade, the environment or humanitarian endeavors. Creating and executing viable opportunities for investment and stable economic growth builds the network and validates contributors as members.

Strength Through Shared Principles and Solidarity

Countries that currently do not abide by the Trust Principles will be excluded from CN membership until they reform problematic practices and laws. No nation is excluded forever, and the CN does not require a country to choose between partnership with the U.S. and any other nation.

By forming this alliance of democracies, members have strength in numbers and solidarity to stand up to any nation that seeks to undermine our prosperity and basic freedoms. The power of the network is a product of the members’ collaboration and mutually beneficial actions.
