European treaties dictate that EU policies promote fundamental European values; including high social and environmental standards and respect for human rights.  In the single market, this commitment ensures that consumers have full confidence in EU health, safety, and consumer protection rules.  However in an open global economy, it becomes challenging to ensure that level of consumer confidence.  While the digital revolution has been removing traditional barriers of geography and distance, it has been raising new concerns about the protection of consumers and their personal data within the EU and internationally.  How can the EU uphold its commitment to fundamental values whilst preserving Europe’s competitiveness in the global digital economy?  And what impact does this have on cross-border digital trade?

Join us for a discussion about the values driving EU policymaking, and what this means for international trade.
