Europe’s New Digital Single Market – Threat or Opportunity for the U.S.?

shutterstock_372312025-300x300Join us on 19 June, 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. EST, for a lively discussion with experts regarding the current regulatory developments in Europe and the United States. Andrea Glorioso, Counselor for the Digital Economy at the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, will provide an overview of what U.S. markets might expect from the EU. He will then be joined by Kelsey Guyselman, Counsel, U.S. House of Representatives and Adam Sedgewick, Technology Advisor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to talk about the opportunities – and risks – that the EU’s new digital regulatory environment may create. They will also discuss the effects of the EU’s DSM plans on U.S. competitiveness, data privacy and data security, trade, and more, exploring what U.S. experiences might inform the EU’s plans and how the changes the EU is contemplating might affect U.S. domestic policies.

Digital trade between the U.S. and the European Union generates more than $8 trillion annually. Some portray the EU’s new “Digital Single Market” (DSM) initiative as a boon for U.S. transatlantic trade. Others view the EU’s DSM as an isolationist ploy that will handcuff U.S. businesses in the EU market.
