Data Privacy Individual Action Plan (IAP) will improve transparency of data protection framework of an economy which in effect will enable other economies to be informed of the relevant stage that an economy has reached. That matches with the overall objective of the APEC Privacy Framework, i.e. to encourage the development of common effective privacy protections and ensure the free flow of information in the region.

Member economies make periodic updates to the Individual Action Plan (IAP) on Information Privacy to update on the progress of domestic implementation of the Framework.
