Reuters reports Vietnam plans to enforce its new data law despite objections from tech companies and other groups. The law requires companies to set up offices and store data within the country if they seek to process citizens’ personal information. Facebook, Google and other tech companies hoped the draft decree on the law’s implementation would relax provisions they found most troublesome; however, documents seen by Reuters indicate those sections remain intact. The draft decree is expected to be open for public opinion within the next couple of days. The law will go into effect Jan. 1 once it receives approval from Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
