Threatening to make it harder for the U.K. to engage in digital trade with the EU is a misguided move that will cause the EU to only fall further behind in the digital economy. To stay competitive post-Brexit and in the digital economy, the EU should ensure its data protection framework facilitates rather than obstructs data transfers with the U.K. and allow easier international transfers with more countries.
