PDP: On 7 February 2023, the government issued Resolution 13 approving the last version of the personal data protection decree (PDPD). The Vietnamese Government has been working on the modernization of its personal data protection legal framework for a few years now, but the issuance of the personal data PDPD appears imminent . Recent publicly issued legal documents on personal data protection hint a few changes from PDPD's last publicly available version.  KPMG will provide a general overview of the main features of the draft PDPD and will guide you through a suggested action plan for compliance with the new regulatory framework. 

IPP: The Amended Intellectual Property Law (“Amended IP Law") took  effect on 1 January 2023. Notably, the Draft Decree guiding the implementation of the Amended IP Law on copyrights and related rights is expected to come into force soon. Risks of lacking IP protection, vulnerable to IP infringement, improper IP portfolio management are among the issues IP holders may not be able to anticipate during the changes of the law. Therefore, IP holders need to keep up to date with the changes, identify and implement proper protection of their IP.
