APEC Ministerial Statements on Privacy/Data Security

Not sure what this APEC statement means (my sense is probably very little substantively, other than symbolic of the growing visibility of privacy/data security generally). In any case, here it is:

Establishing Cross-Border Privacy Rules 

Regional economic integration, regulatory cooperation, and cross-border trade can be enhanced through improved trust and predictability in electronic commerce. We endorsed the principal documents of the APEC Privacy Pathfinder that support these important objectives. Implementing the APEC Privacy Framework through Cross Border Privacy Rules enables greater information flows that support innovation and promote interoperability across global data privacy regimes, while enhancing data privacy practices; facilitating regulatory cooperation; and enabling greater accountability through the use of common principles, coordinated legal approaches, and accountability agents.
