This article analyzes key features of China's data privacy regulations. It also discusses how the contexts, mechanisms and consequences associated with China's data privacy regulations contrast sharply with other major economies. Also explained in the article are the internal and external pressures facing the Chinese government and other key drivers that have contributed to the development of data privacy regulations in the country. Overall, while European Union data privacy regulations are characterized by a strong emphasis on the protection of personal data, and the U.S. places a high priority on self-regulation by businesses in an attempt to encourage marketing and innovation, Chinese data privacy regulations have reflected a greater emphasis on the government's cyber-control measures.
