Global Data Alliance Encourages EU to Fully Integrate Cross-Border Data Flows into Data Strategy

BRUSSELS – June 2, 2020 – In comments submitted on the European Strategy for Data, The Global Data Alliance welcomes the EU’s forward-looking commitment and international approach to data flows, based on trust and openness.

The Strategy rightly points out that European businesses operate in a connected, cross-border economy and that data flows are indispensable for competitiveness. Companies in every sector increasingly rely on the ability to transfer data around the world, including Europe, to sustain global commerce, protect consumers from fraud and counterfeit products, improve health and safety, optimize day-to-day operations, and promote social good.

“Cross-border data flows are instrumental to the responsible use of digital technologies by companies of all sizes and all sectors in Europe – and, by extension, to Europe's economic recovery post-COVID-19,” said Isabelle Roccia, Senior Manager, EMEA Policy at BSA | The Software Alliance, on behalf of the GDA. “The objectives of innovation and competitiveness laid out in the Data Strategy can only be achieved if the EU continues to fully integrate cross-border data flows into future data-related policies.”

“On the global stage, the EU’s ongoing efforts to promote cross-border data flows, as well as strong privacy safeguards, are critical to encouraging trust and responsible behavior in the digital economy,” Roccia added.
