CCIA Response To U.S., European Agreement On The Withdrawal of Digital Taxes

CCIA welcomes the leadership of the United States, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom in reaching a compromise that will lead to the removal of existing digital services taxes.

While the most appropriate action would be an immediate withdrawal of these discriminatory unilateral measures in exchange for terminating the trade investigations, we stand ready to work with policymakers to see the swift implementation of the global framework, and ensure that no new discriminatory measures are introduced in the future.

It is encouraging that the new consensus on global tax reform already appears to be reducing international tax and trade tensions.

Three Missing Ingredients to make the Digital Markets Act fit for the digital age - Disruptive Competition Project

The Digital Markets Act is on the agenda when European leaders meet on 21 October. With so many points still undecided, it’s important not to lose sight of the goal: crafting a #DMAfortheDigitalAge that will benefit Europe’s consumers, economy, and society. https://www.project-disco.org/european-union/101121-three-missing-ingredients-to-make-the-digital-markets-act-fit-for-the-digital-age/ #DMA #DigitalMarketsAct

As EU lawmakers enter a critical stage in finalising the recipe for the Digital Markets Act, it is critical that they get the balance right.

EU Top Court Strikes Down Privacy Shield, CCIA Calls for Urgent Legal Certainty and Solutions

Today's court decision creates legal uncertainty for the thousands of large and small companies on both sides of the Atlantic that rely on Privacy Shield for their daily commercial data transfers. We trust that EU and U.S. decision-makers will swiftly develop a sustainable solution, in line with EU law, to ensure the continuation of data flows which underpins the transatlantic economy. We hope enforcement authorities will grant Privacy Shield signatories time to migrate to alternative legal mechanisms.
