The Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) has shared its concerns on the proposals to amend Decree 72  via a joint industry submission to the Government of Vietnam and Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC).  The draft decree’s wide-ranging proposals include severe regulations for social media platforms, app store platforms, in-app transaction payments platforms, as well as stringent data localisation requirements, all of which could result in constraints on Vietnam’s digital economy prospects. In conjunction, AIC released the attached statement to media.
