On Sep 14th, AustCham Shanghai's Finance, Investment & Tax (FIT) Industry Forum is hosting a panel discussion on China's Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) and we welcome all AustCham Shanghai members and non-members to join.

In an increasingly interconnected global economy, the seamless flow of data across borders has become pivotal for businesses to thrive and innovate. The recent enactment of China's Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) has added a new layer of complexity to cross-border data transfer practices. As businesses gather, process, and utilize personal information, understanding the implications of PIPL is crucial to ensure compliance, build trust, and seize growth opportunities.

The panel discussion is part of series of activities brought to you by the FIT Industry Forum, which aims to provide the latest market updates and networking opportunities for FIT Members, and is chaired by Thomas Horn, Head of China at Macquarie Group, and vice-chaired by Kenneth Sin,

Markets Partner at Cross Asset Wealth Management.
