In an interview with Bloomberg, European Union Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová discussed the conversations she had with U.S. officials about Privacy Shield during this week's visit to Washington. Jourová said she spoke with U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, who assured the commissioner he understood the importance of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement and the commitments in place for state administrators. When asked if she would pull Privacy Shield if she did not receive the assurances she needs, Jourová said she had “positive feelings” after speaking with Ross, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and various businesses. Jourová said she felt Privacy Shield was fulfilling its purpose, while expressing she felt privacy would not be placed on the back burner compared to national security obligations.
