Bangladesh: Privacy and Data Workshop Phase II

October 14, 2020

On October 14, 2020, CLDP held a second virtual consultation via video with participants from the Bangladesh government and private sector on current regulatory issues, discussing data and privacy issues as well as draft legislation, following up on an introductory consultation in April 2020. The program also included other issues of interest, such as policies regarding artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.  The Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration and the Federal Trade Commission joined CLDP in conducting this program, which is part of CLDP’s work in South Asia under the Department of State’s Digital Connectivity and Cybersecurity Partnership (DCCP).  DCCP supports increased access to communications, an open, interoperable, and secure Internet, transparent regulatory policies for open competitive markets, and trade opportunities for U.S. firms.  DCCP also builds partners nations’ capacity to address shared security threats, along with capacity building and commercial engagement activities.
