BRUSSELS — Today, ITI issued the following statement from its President and CEO Jason Oxman in response to the United Kingdom (UK) government’s publication of a mandate setting out its approach to forthcoming negotiations with the European Union (EU) on their future economic relationship:

“As the UK and EU initiate negotiations for their future economic partnership, we encourage both sides to pursue a mutually beneficial, forward-looking arrangement that prioritizes the continued cross-channel movement of data as well as pragmatic, flexible approaches to regulatory compatibility. Doing so will facilitate innovation and the open exchange of goods and services while preserving strong protections for privacy, security, safety, and the environment.”
