Cross-border data flows: data governance and international trade

Background

The internet and digital services have introduced important innovative benefits for users around the globe. The new business opportunities and thriving cross-border trade also contribute to the economic growth of local markets. Digital services nowadays support a wide range of daily activities online, including intermediary services, marketplaces, and social networking. As a result, consumers enjoy more choices, industries become more competitive, and community participation across the globe has been thriving. The social, pollical, and economic impact of this trend is phenomenal. 

Digital economic activities rely heavily on the access, use, and transfer of users’ personal data. In addition, issues stemming from cross-border transactions—taxation, cross-jurisdiction regulation applicability, personal data processing, and privacy protection—invite dialogues among the global multistakeholder Internet community.

The panelists will discuss the challenges brought by a shifting focus of global trade to existing trade rules, cross-border data flow, and the development of the global framework for data governance. They will also touch upon the direction and considerations Taiwan should focus on when developing policies regarding cross-border data flow.

資料治理與國際貿易 — 談跨境資料流通

活動背景

網路數位服務為使用者帶來了重要的創新利益,透過開創新商機以促進跨境交易之活絡,進而刺激帶動國內市場之經濟發展。如今,這些網路數位服務涵蓋了更為廣泛的日常活動,包括線上中介服務 (intermediation)、線上市集 (marketplace)、線上社交網路 (social networking) 等服務;除藉此增加了消費者的選擇外,更提高了產業競爭力,並增強了全球化網路公民參與的程度,已然對社會與政經之影響甚鉅。

然而,因為數位經濟活動仰賴使用者個人資料的取得、使用與傳輸,其中因跨境所產生之跨境課稅、跨司法管轄權之法律規範、個資使用之隱私權等議題,亟需全球網路社群之利害關係人共同深入探討。

本座談將以專題演講的方式,說明因全球貿易重心轉變,既有貿易規則對跨境資料傳輸的限制與全球資料治理框架制定的挑戰,並進一步探討我國在跨境資料流通政策制定上,應考量之面向與方向建議。
