About the Compendium
This compendium contains 14 country reports written by renowned practitioners and legal academics in the respective jurisdictions on the regulation of cross-border data transfers and data localisation in Asia. It covers Australia, China, Hong Kong SAR, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau SAR, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This is from the first part of the ABLI's Data Privacy Project to promote the convergence of rules on cross-border transfers of personal data in Asia as rule-making on data transfers will continue to intensify in the region. It offers comprehensive coverage of legal and regulatory frameworks on data transfers, including scope, key notions, data transfer instruments, data Localisation rules, data-related clauses in free trade agreements. This becomes a useful compendium for governments, regulators and companies facing the contrasted and constantly shifting legal landscape in data privacy, with a significant impact on cross-border data flows in the wider Asia region. The overall objective of the project is to contribute to laying the fundamentals for a shared legal ecosystem for cross-border data transfers in the wider Asian region.
