Today, and on behalf of the U.S. and UK Governments, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo and UK Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, The Rt Hon Michelle Donelan MP issued the following statement on the launch of a U.S.-UK Comprehensive Dialogue on Technology and Data building on our 2021 commitment to develop a landmark bilateral Technology Partnership, and on significant progress made on U.S.-UK data adequacy.
U.S.-UK Technology Partnership
Cross-Border Data Flows
This is a significant step forward in our work on bilateral cross-border data flows, which will facilitate the free and secure flow of personal data from the UK to the US. We are working together to ensure that a deal on U.S.-UK data adequacy upholds the rights of data subjects, facilitates responsible innovation, gives individuals in both countries access to the services that suit them, reduces burdens on businesses and delivers better outcomes for people.  Building on our strong bilateral relationship, we will continue to work collaboratively on multilateral initiatives to facilitate trusted global data flows, such as the future of the Global Cross-Border Privacy Rules Forum where we seek to remove barriers to commercial cross-border data flows and the OECD’s work on Trusted Government Access to Data, increasing trust in the lawful government access to data for law enforcement and national security purposes; and to counter the influence of authoritarian and protectionist approaches to cross-border data flows.
