European Union calls for smoother data flow in trade deals, shuns protectionism

The European Union is taking active steps to ensure the smooth flow of data between member countries and the rest of the world in the future while also ensuring the privacy of users.

The European Union aims to conduct businesses with countries that will not mandate the storage and processing of customer data only within their borders and whose privacy regulations will be consistent with the GDPR.

According to documents accessed by Reuters, while the European Union seeks to insert the strict provisions of the upcoming GDPR into future trade deals, it is also taking steps to fight back against protectionist measures implemented by certain nations that require personal data of citizens to be stored and processed only within their borders.
