China to Create New Top Regulator to Manage Data Resources
China will create a National Data Bureau to coordinate the sharing and development of data resources, according to a plan submitted Tuesday to the National People’s Congress (NPC), the country’s top legislature.
The creation of the new top data regulator is part of a massive revamp of agencies under the State Council, the country’s cabinet.
The National Data Bureau will be administrated by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the country’s top economic planner, according to the proposal. The bureau will be responsible for promoting the development of fundamental data-related institutions and coordinating the development of the digital economy and digital society.
