Formulation of guidelines for companies due to US-China conflict Handling of confidential information, etc.
In the midst of fierce conflict between the United States and China, the Liberal Democratic Party Parliamentary League confirmed that it would urge the government to develop guidelines on the handling of confidential information for Japanese companies doing business in both the United States and China.
The Parliamentary League, chaired by the Liberal Democratic Party's chairman of the Amari tax system investigation, will affect Japanese companies at the meeting on the 22nd as the U.S. government tightens restrictions on Chinese telecommunications equipment giant Huawei. We discussed future measures.
Professor Toshifumi Kokubun of the Tama University Graduate School, which specializes in economic security, attended the meeting and said, "It is inevitable that the economic conflict between the United States and China will deepen in the future, and the US government has told Japanese companies. We are asking for a coordinated response. "
Based on this, the Parliamentary Union said that it is necessary for the public and private sectors to work together to protect information such as cutting-edge technology, and for Japanese companies doing business in both the United States and China, the departments in charge of each of the United States and China will be separated. We have confirmed that we will ask the government to formulate guidelines on the handling of confidential information, including thorough awareness of risks to employees.
