JAKARTA, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia's House of Representatives passed a data privacy bill on Tuesday, Minister of Communication and Information Technology Johnny G. Plate said after a plenary session to legislate the new law.

The minister said that the bill, which was initially proposed in 2016, will strengthen trust and recognition of Indonesia's leadership in global data governance.

"From government perspective, the data protection law will strengthen the role and authority of the government in enforcing and supervising the compliance and obligations of all data operators," Plate said.
