ABLI is discussed on page 7 of the Guide, under the heading "Regional harmonisation, adequacy, inter-operability?", in the following terms.

In a separate move to enhance co-operation between jurisdictions on the subject of data transfer in the region, in 2017 the Asia Business Law Institute’s Board of Governors (“ABLI”) launched a multi-stakeholder Data Privacy Project focusing on the regulation of international data transfers in a selection of Asian jurisdictions.

Hogan Lovells’ Mark Parsons is among the group of data privacy experts appointed as a Jurisdictional Reporter to advise on the project. 

A set of Jurisdictional Reports was published in 2018. In the second phase of the Project, the Jurisdictional Reporters and the wider Experts Committee will draft recommendations on key issues identified, aiming at a convergence of cross-border data transfer requirements across the region.

ABLI is honoured that its work has been cited in Hogan Lovells' very useful Guide.
