Head of Beijing Internet Court describes China’s internet judicial practice to APEC's PSU
Zhang Wen, president of the Beijing Internet Court, and He Fan, director of the judicial reform office of China's Supreme People's Court, were invited to give an online consultancy on China's internet-related judicial practices to the Policy Support Unit (PSU) of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) on Aug 12.
The online consultancy will be a reference for APEC's global e-commerce rules negotiation and a part of its plan for capacity building.
APEC has been actively carrying out communication of internet and e-commerce regulation since last year. Its PSU has set a special program on the issue.
Three subjects, namely China's internet-related judicial progress on consumers' rights and interests protection, regulation practices of children's personal information protection on internet and China's e-commerce law, were included in the special program of PSU.
The results of the online consultancy will be written as a report which will be on the desks at the APEC leaders' meeting.
The first of the three subjects reflects China’s good internet and e-commerce policies and practices. Its inclusion in the PSU program is helpful for economies engaging with APEC to better understand Chinese internet governance ideology and methods.
