Commissioner Haruhi Kumazawa attended the 45th APPA Forum held in Singpore on 21-22 July, 2016.

The PPC has sent its delegates to this forum for the first time as an official member of the APPA, where Commissioner Kumazawa gave a statement on the establishment of the PPC as an independent organization and its commitment to expanding cooperation with counterparts in other countries, so that Japan boosted its presence in the international data protection framework.

This forum was organized by 20 data protection authorities (DPAs) participating from 15 countries and regions, and discussed issues related to each country’s systemic reform in personal information protection, responses made to data leak events, and public relations and awareness raising efforts.
