WASHINGTON, January 6, 2021 ⁠— The American business community supports the administration’s efforts to protect American citizens’ privacy and data. The US-China Business Council (USCBC) understands that President Trump’s January 5 executive order regarding transactions with mobile applications aims to achieve this goal. However, it is vital that this executive order be scoped and enforced in such a way that protects US citizens’ legitimate interests, but does not unnecessarily harm US company competitiveness in international markets, particularly a market as strategically important to many companies as China.
