Eliminate unnecessary international and domestic travel

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Conducting international negotiations overseas (as an example) is unnecessary considering the available technology. Offices are equiped with advanced communications that permit conferences electronically. Why is it then necessary to have to send a group overseas to conduct negotiations which are generally informal/friendly in nature and that can be conducted via teleconference? The government would save several million dollars over a couple of years by implemented mandatory teleconferences.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
