Vietnam, 10 countries, largest cross-border data transfer, digital economy, suitable pathway, free flow of data

Vietnam has been among the top 10 countries in terms of cross-border data transfer in the past decade.

The event aimed to find measures to protect users’ data safety and privacy without affecting the flow of data, deemed an artery of the digital economy.

The flow benefits the development of international trade as part of the global economy, but also poses challenges to Vietnam in terms of policies.

Therefore, seeking a suitable pathway is key to the country’s digital economy development.

Digital economy surged to US$14 billion last year from just US$3 million recorded in 2015, according to President of the Vietnam Digital Communications Association Nguyen Minh Hong. The figure is forecast to hit US$52 billion by 2025.

Balance between data exchange, including personal and cross-border data, and privacy protection in a bid to strengthen users’ trust, is among the topics for building policies in Vietnam.

In the absence of protection mechanisms, the risks of data abuse will be tremendous for users, communities and countries, said Hong, who is also the former Deputy Minister of Information and Communications.

Vietnam’s building of legal regulations on cross-border data transfer are still in the initial phase, experts said.

The country should work to realise the twin targets of promoting the free flow of data for digital economy development, and ensuring safety and privacy for users, Dong said, adding supplementary measures should also be considered in the sector.
