On February 9, 2021, Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) released the full text of the Draft Decree on Personal Data Protection (“Draft PDPD”) for public consultation, after having released an outline in December 2019, with an ambitious goal for the Draft PDPD to be promulgated and take effect on December 1, 2021. This date has now passed and the Draft PDPD remains unissued, with no concrete details on when the situation will change.

In this article, we take a deeper look at the issues that have attracted the most attention from national and international stakeholders as they wait for the draft to be finalized and promulgated.
