“If the United States can avoid being flat-footed the way it was on privacy while Europe moves forward, and if it can lean more in, I think that creates a better political environment between the US and Europe,” said Craig Albright, the vice president of legislative strategy for BSA | The Software Alliance, a trade group with footprints in Washington and Brussels.
“China is trying to steer countries in a direction that is different than what the United States and Europe are trying to go towards,” Albright said. When it comes to EU-US relations, he added, “I think you'll have a new administration that wants to leverage that point and wants to build on that point in a way that the [Trump] administration just didn't really care about.”
