In a post for Politico, EU Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová explains why the U.S. government needs to adopt stronger privacy laws. Jourová cites the "overwhelmingly positive" effects the EU General Data Protection Regulation has had on both citizens and businesses, as well as how privacy rules can help in the development of artificial intelligence. The commissioner notes tech companies in the U.S. have already voiced their support for stronger legislation. "It’s time for America to join us, Japan and many others in our work, and be part of setting the global standards on privacy," Jourová writes. "We should be building a global coalition to tackle the challenge together and promote free trade based on respect of strong privacy rules."
