Wang Yi addresses three criteria to be adopted when handling data protection risks State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Global Digital Governance on 8 September 2020
Symposium on following three principles to respond effectively to the risks and challenges of data security:

Firstly, promoting multilateralism. It’s the best way to explore, create and share together solve a global gap in digital governance. Global data protection rules which reflect everybody’s wishes countries should be entered on the basis of mutual regard for the rights of all parties both Parties Participate. Individual countries practice unilateralism aggressively;
Under the pretext of “cleanliness” spill dirty water on other countries and use protection as an excuse
To perform multinational hunting of other leading firms. This is an act of bare bullying and
Should be dismissed and opposed.

Second, take the protection and growth into consideration. The safeguarding of data is important for the healthy
Digital Economic Growth. — country shall have the right to protect its own data protection in according to regulations. At the same time, all undertakings should be granted an open, equal market climate, and non-discriminatory.

Digital protectionism goes against the rules of the objective

Politicizing problems concerning data protection, intentionally applying double standards, even spreading rumors and smearing,
Violates fundamental international relations principles, and seriously interferes with and hinders global digital working together and creating.
