Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Commission and the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore released a discussion paper on the inclusion of a data portability provision within the city-state’s Personal Data Protection Act, ZDNet reports. The Singaporean government has considered data portability as part of its review of the PDPA. The PDPC’s discussion paper covers the ways cross-sector portability can be achieved. The commission notes “cross-sectoral data portability” is necessary to enhance technological innovations. “Data is a key enabler of digital transformation, but a delicate balance must be struck between data protection and business innovation,” Singapore Minister for Communications and Information S. Iswaran said. “[The] discussion paper on data portability ... sets out our thoughts through the lens of personal data protection, competition, and data flows to support services and innovation in the digital economy.”
