Amazon opens to Kiwis, govt agrees to consumer data right

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 8 July 2021

Technology commentator Bill Bennett joins Kathryn to talk about Amazon opening its Australian store to New Zealand customers and what that might mean for New Zealand retailers and other online stores.

The Government has agreed to establish a consumer data right framework for New Zealanders, which would require data holders like banks and power companies to safely and securely share data with third parties with their customers' consent.

And Bill will also look at why Facebook, Google and other tech companies are threatening to quit Hong Kong.
