PARIS, May 24 (Reuters) - The European Union's industry chief has called on the United States to pass new tech regulations, in the hopes of fostering a cohesive digital marketplace across the Atlantic.

"We need the same digital regulation. It would be fantastic to have a global digital market. Not only EU, not only U.S., but EU and U.S.," Thierry Breton said.

Breton was speaking at the annual "Viva Technology" conference in Paris, where leading tech executives and political figures such as ex-Google (GOOGL.O), CEO Eric Schmidt and former U.S. climate envoy John Kerry took to the stage this year. (Reporting by Martin Coulter; editing by Philippa Fletcher)
