It might be too unrealistic to expect the U.S. to reach an agreement on data flows with all trading partners, at least right away, but a common understanding with Europe should be achievable, according to Ms. Espinel. “The U.S. and Europe have, I believe, more commonality on issues such as privacy than commonly described,” she said. “I think the Europeans care a lot about privacy. And we care a lot about privacy. But our systems are different.”
