The U.S. Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Analysis Ted Dean and Secretary General Mari Sonoda of the Personal Information Protection Commission of Japan met Oct. 19 to continue to affirm both group's dedication to "implement and expand" the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules, the International Trade Administration reports. The rules aim to protect privacy and foster increased trans-border data flow confidence, the report states. "The CBPR system offers a tremendous opportunity across APEC to protect consumer privacy while facilitating data flows that are critical to trade and economic growth,” said Dean. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Government of Japan to implement and expand the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules system.”
