The APEC CBPR Framework has become the model for ensuring high-standard privacy and data protections that facilitate cross-border data flows. Over the past year, more APEC economies, such as South Korea, Australia, and Singapore, have announced participation in the framework enhancing the potential for the framework to serve as the foundation for a global system of interoperable and robust privacy protection.

Join us for a discussion with APEC leaders and industry representatives to better understand how the framework works and the benefits its provides to both companies and countries that participate and adopt its principles.
