Asian Business Law Institute Data Privacy Forum
“The vision of this forum, which is to help in the development of a “shared legal ecosystem for international data flows in Asia” is an ambitious one; but we draw confidence from the fact that it is a shared enterprise. I am therefore heartened to see such a strong and diverse group of persons gathered here today. Among others, we have representatives from data protection commissions; government officials; partners of law firms; academics; and members of industry. This is precisely the sort of event which I – and the other founding partners of the ABLI – had envisioned the Institute would organise: events that foster discussion and cooperation between governments as well as members of the business, legal, and academic communities. Thank you all very much for being a part of this common project.”
