Galexia provides technical assistance for Indonesian cyberlaw bill - January 2008
Galexia has been assisting ASEAN meet targets set in the Roadmap for Integration of e-ASEAN Sector (the e-ASEAN Roadmap). Measures contained in the e-ASEAN Roadmap for e-commerce include:
- Measure 78: Enact domestic legislation to provide legal recognition of electronic transactions (i.e., Cyberlaws) based on common reference frameworks. (Deadline: 31 December 2008)
Galexia’s project on e-commerce legal infrastructure for ASEAN has been expanded to include special assistance for Indonesia. This phase will run from January to April 2008.
Indonesia has developed draft legislation to meet this target - the Electronic Information and Transaction Bill. It is an ambitious piece of legislation covering e-government, electronic contracting, privacy, Cybercrime, spam, digital copyright and other cyberlaw issues in a single omnibus Bill.
This new project will assist Indonesia through:
- The research, preparation and distribution of materials on the benefits, issues and challenges of developing e-commerce legislation in Indonesia; and
- A high-level awareness raising and technical assistance workshop to facilitate the promotion of the Indonesian Electronic Information and Transaction Bill.
The Harmonisation of E-Commerce Legal Infrastructure in ASEAN Project is funded by the ASEAN Australia Development Cooperation Program (AADCP). AADCP is funded by the Australian Government through AusAID, implemented in close collaboration with the ASEAN Secretariat, and managed by Cardno Acil.
