    The EU-US Trade and Tech Council serves as a platform for fostering cooperation and addressing regulatory challenges in the digital economy. By facilitating dialogue between key stakeholders from both regions, it aims to enhance transatlantic collaboration on various tech-related issues such as data privacy, cybersecurity, and emerging technologies. Engaging in constructive discussions and mutual agreements through this council can lead to harmonized standards and increased opportunities for innovation and economic growth on both sides of the Atlantic.
