China to create customs for digital data

China’s Guangdong Province has announced its intention to create a common data platform for the Greater Bay Area, which includes Hong Kong and Macau. The government also wants to equip it with a customs hub to analyze and control digital data transferred abroad, writes Reuters.

It is not yet clear what information will be stored on the platform. The authorities say the announced projects will facilitate the exchange of information between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as the development of industry and social projects. In addition, a data trading market will be built along with it, but the list of potential sales data is also not specified. There are still no details on how exactly the digital data customs will be organized.

It is likely that the initiative was the result of a new plan by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to develop the cybersecurity industry. The project appeared in connection with the desire of the authorities to develop new regulations aimed at protecting personal data and commercial information.
