Author: CYNTHIA RICH, Bloomberg BNA Insights

In this second article of a three-part series on the status of data protection laws in Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, the author explores developments in Asia, where 11 jurisdictions now have comprehensive privacy laws.

Privacy legislation in Asia has been extremely active in the past few years, and the level of activity and enforcement does not show any signs of slowing down. Eleven jurisdictions in Asia now have comprehensive privacy laws: Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macao, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. New Zealand is the only jurisdiction in the region that has been recognized by the European Commission as providing adequate protection.
