On Friday 29 September the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, in cooperation with the President of the European Council and the European Commission, is organising the Tallinn Digital Summit to bring together EU heads of state or government.
The Tallinn Digital Summit will be a platform to launch high-level discussions on further plans for digital innovation with the aim of keeping Europe ahead of the technological curve while becoming a digital leader, globally, in the years to come. Summit discussions will be focused on the essential topics of building a digital future for Europe: trust, security, e-government, industry, society and the economy.
Ahead of the Digital Summit, ALDE Prime Minister of Estonia, Jüri Ratas, prepared a video message for our readers: "I am sure that our future is digital, not analogue. You are all very welcome in Tallinn for the Digital Summit at the end of September as well as to visit us in Tallinn throughout the Estonian EU Presidency and next year when we celebrate Estonia's 100th anniversary."
At last week's Liberal lunch with Jüri Ratas, organised by the ALDE Party and FNF Europe, the Prime Minister emphasised the importance of digitalisation: "A safe digital Single Market is the EU's future. The future will be digital. The Estonian EU Presidency aims to bring the EU ahead in terms of digitalisation."
