SCMP | China’s Privacy Law Borrows a Page From Europe’s GDPR but it Goes Further as Beijing Shores Up Data Security

Seha Yatim, Access Partnership’s Senior Policy Manager, has been quoted in a piece that focuses on the European regulation inspiring China’s Privacy Laws.

She commented that European regulation has been heavily shaped by privacy hawks “who rode on the [Edward] Snowden debacle to push their agenda,” referring to the former US National Security Agency contractor who shook the world by unveiling the extent of US government surveillance in 2013.

Meanwhile, China’s push for data privacy aligns with its “interest to dominate emerging technologies that rely heavily on data usage.”
