“Internet Association welcomes today’s announcement on the UK government’s priority areas for a US trade deal. It is encouraging to see a strong focus on the digital sector as part of any trade arrangement. The internet enables British businesses to export, so it is vital that the future US-UK trade agreement includes strong digital provisions that enable cross-border data flows, encourage vibrant e-commerce markets, and facilitate digital exports.
