TOKYO -- A coalition of 14 global corporations including Toyota Motor and IBM has called for free and secure data flows across borders, in line with efforts by the Group of 20 to set up international standards on data transfers.

Other players behind the companies' joint statement include Nippon Telegraph and Telephone, NEC, Thomson Reuters, Cisco Systems, Mastercard and Airbus. Another 10 or so are expected to back their recommendations, which have already been submitted to the Japanese and U.S. governments.
