On August 5th, 2021, Digital Ministers will meet in Trieste to advance the dialogue on Digital Transformation of the economy and society as a leverage for resilient, sustainable and inclusive recovery.

Based on the achievements and commitments of past Presidencies, and acknowledging of the impact of the pandemic on the economy, employment and the wellbeing of our societies, the Italian Presidency decided to place digitalisation at the center of the G20 discussions.

The Digital Economy will be a core topic, as will Digital Government. Key goals are: further harnessing the potential of digitalisation for a resilient, sustainable and inclusive recovery, keeping pace with the profound transformation that digitalisation has generated in the economy and society, and bridging inequalities.

The key topics related to the digital economy to be addressed during the working sessions are as follows:
