On June 30, 2020 China enacted a National Security Law applicable in Hong Kong. The UK and USA governments reacted negatively, stoking fears that this could mean the end of the one-country-two systems concept. Front-page news abounds about the meaning, the reach, and the political implications. But what about business and normal life, about Hong Kong’s role as a global financial and technology center? How does one understand the impact on data privacy? Does this mean a replacement of Hong Kong law or will it be Hong Kong business as usual? In this podcast Pádraig Walsh of Tanner De Witt Solicitors, a leading Hong Kong law firm, guides us. If you have ideas for more interviews or stories, please email info@thedataprivacydetective.com.
