P-004161/2021
Priority question for written answer  P-004161/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Eva Kaili (S&D)
 Subject: Chinese tech and privacy concerns

On 10 July, the Chinese Cybersecurity Review Office unveiled the draft of a revised version of the data security review rules passed last year, which presents challenges for Chinese companies operating in Europe and non-Chinese operating in China.

The reform includes requirements on data security and localisation, bringing questions of sovereignty, jurisdiction and citizens’ rights to the forefront of the discussion, as Chinese companies operating outside of China are expected to comply. For example, when Chinese giant Didi made its overseas users’ data available to the Chinese government, this created concerns about compliance with data protection and privacy laws, and forced the postponement of its European debut.

As the Commission continues to build a legislative framework fit for the digital age:

1. How does it plan to ensure the compliance of new and existing corporate actors with the current and future legal framework, ensuring fair competition and respect of EU citizens’ rights?

2. How does it plan to address the recent proposal by the Chinese government’s Cybersecurity Review Office?
