G20 Members’ Regulations of Cross-Border Data Flows

G20 Members’ Regulations of Cross-Border Data Flows

Format *
This report builds on the responses to a survey of G20 Members’ current laws and regulations pertaining to cross-border data flows. It seeks to establish a better understanding of where there are commonalities, complementarities, convergence and divergence, and contribute to further dialogue on how to shape governance frameworks that can facilitate cross-border data flows and data free flow with trust. This report focuses predominantly on domestic policies of G20 member States and invited guests affecting data flows. Consequently, they highlight unilateral ways of handling data-related issues and indirectly illustrate countries’ national priorities in safeguarding data and enabling data flows. For international discussions in this area to succeed, a better understanding of the national perspectives can be a beneficial component.
