Mexico’s top privacy regulator won’t finalize any strategy for adding privacy provisions to NAFTA until the Trump administration issues a formal proposal on the trade pact’s renegotiation, a spokeswoman for the regulator told Bloomberg BNA.
President Donald Trump has said he intends to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. Adding provisions on modern digital economy data transfers, and their attendant privacy and data security issues, may be possible.
Although it is too early to accurately predict what specific privacy and data security proposals may emerge, differences in the Mexican and U.S. privacy regimes might be amenable to better harmonization if mutual recognition provisions are ultimately included in a renegotiated NAFTA.
