The first and only of its kind in Asia, Regulation of Cross-Border Transfers of Personal Data in Asia contains 14 detailed reports written by legal practitioners, legal scholars and researchers in their respective jurisdictions, on the regulation of cross-border data transfers in the wider Asian region (Australia, China, Hong Kong SAR, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Macau SAR, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam). 

The compendium provides a holistic study of the regulation of data transfers in 14 different jurisdictions. Each report goes beyond a mere study of data transfer provisions in Asian data privacy laws to address the wider spectrum of issues that have an impact on the legal framework of cross-border data flows. The compendium is designed for governments, data privacy regulators, law practitioners and industry, in Asia and beyond, to understand the scope, the operation and the implementation of regulations applicable to data transfers and data localisation requirements in the region.

Features a Foreword by the Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh MENON of the Supreme Court of Singapore.

Produced as part of ABLI's Convergence of the Rules and Standards for Cross-Border Data Transfers in Asia project.
