2021 has marked a renewal of the transatlantic relationship, with greater collaboration and alignment called on by both sides of the Atlantic on digital trade, artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity. EU Ambassador to the US Stavros Lambrinidis made it clear that Europe’s leadership in digital needs to build on international cooperation.
