Dear Mr. President:

We commend the United States and the European Commission on the recent announcement of a new Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (the “Framework”). A new agreement is critical for supporting responsible data transfers, which promises to reinvigorate the Privacy Shield program and support all data transfers between the EU and US, and we urge the US and EU to swiftly finalize the Framework and bring it into force.

Companies of all sizes and in every sector of the economy – including manufacturing, farming, aviation, technology, entertainment, retail, logistics, financial services, and health care – depend on the ability to send data across international borders to provide the services that businesses and individuals expect. International data flows underpin the global economy, and companies must transfer data every day to perform routine activities like processing payroll, working with suppliers, and serving customers worldwide.
