Virtual Event

Event Overview

A discussion previewing the 2023 G7 Summit and the next steps on Data Free Flow with Trust.

In 2019, then-Prime Minister Shinzo Abe proposed a new model for how nations and companies share data across borders. The Data Free Flow with Trust (DFFT) proposal will take center stage at the upcoming G7 Summit in Hiroshima. This conversation will address key questions on the way forward for DFFT. How do governments determine “trust”? What are the implications for transatlantic data flows? How can like-minded international partners work together to make Japan’s vision of digital trust a reality?
