Law on Cyber Security in line with international practice: Ministry of Public Security

Major General Luong Tam Quang, Chief of the Office of the Ministry of Public Security, told the regular government media conference for October in Hanoi on Saturday that the newly-adopted Law on Cyber Security is in line with international practice.

Major General Quang said: Google has set up about 70 representative offices and Facebook has 80 representative offices in countries all over the world. In Southeast Asia, Google and Facebook have offices in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. In the revised Law on Tax Management, Vietnam's Ministry of Finance urges foreign service providers like Google and Facebook to open their official representative offices in Vietnam.

Minister and Head of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung said the promulgation of the Law on Cyber Security is essential and that the Vietnamese government has issued a decree on detailed implementation of the law, which will take effect from January 1, 2019.
