Full title: Different Parties' Roles in Personal Information Protection: Practices and Attempts in the View of the Asia-Pacific Region

Asia Pacific region is becoming the most active gathering place for technology innovation, it’s also the region that has the most prominent imbalance in data governance. However, in recent years, Asia Pacific countries has come to realize the importance of strengthening data governance, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Korea, India, China and so on have enacted laws & regulations or taken actions to build and amend their personal information protection systems. Over the past decade, experience in Internet governance has demonstrated the importance of multi-parties' participation. We hope the attempts and practices from government, civil society, technical community, private sector and individual will enrich the model of Internet governance. And we wish to work with different parties to form a joint force to promote personal information security and explore the value of the practice in a global perspective.
