Trade Talks To Resume This Week Without Privacy
GLOBAL INTEROPERABILITY—EU & U.S.November 11, 2013
Trade talks between the U.S. and EU are set to resume this week, but according to Euractiv, data protection and secrecy issues will not be on the docket. Instead, the parties are expected to discuss services, investment, energy and raw materials and regulatory issues. EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding has been vocal in the past about including data protection issues in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. According to the report, the U.S. has been mounting pressure to keep the debate about including data protection in the talks open.
