    AmCham EU has closely followed and participated in the discussions on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) throughout the policy development process and has supported the European Commission’s objective of harmonising data privacy across the EU.

For that to happen data protection regulation must strike the right balance between protecting personal data and encouraging innovation rather than stifling it.
