Margrethe Vestager, the Executive Vice-President of the European Commission, will be attending the Three Seas Business Forum in October, at which she will be sharing her thoughts on the digital future of the Three Seas region.
Vestager says that in order to shape Europe's digital future, we need digital infrastructures and technologies that serve a purpose and work for us all.
"COVID-19 has shown just how much we need a functioning Single market and first-class, secure connectivity," she said. "There is huge potential in investing in research, skills and capabilities. We need to make sure that the vast amount of data created every day, are in full respect of the digital rights of citizens. The data should also be available to innovators, start-ups and industries to enable them contribute to Europe’s digital transition."
The digital pillar of the Three Seas Initiative will be one of the key topics discussed during the event in Tallinn.
