Thanks Carolina. Google Translate does a real hatchet job on this
interview, and I'm struggling and failing to understand CA's remarks on the
data localisation amendment. If anyone who reads Portuguese better than me,
or who can decipher Google-ese better than me, could post a brief summary
(even just a few lines), I'd be very grateful!
many thanks
Anne
