Tech7 call on G7 governments to work towards four objectives to improve economic recovery and resilience in the post-pandemic era
DIGITALEUROPE is taking part in a joint effort by the technology sector trade associations of the G7 countries and the EU, known as the Tech7, calling for international cooperation to reap the benefits of technological innovation in the post-COVID era.
For technological innovation to continue to deliver not only for the G7 economies, but for as many countries and regions of the world as possible, the Tech7 associations call on their countries to work together towards facilitating global trade flows and setting a common rulebook for the digital economy that prioritises transparent, compatible, and non-discriminatory approaches to digital policy at the global level.
Tech7 strongly encourage the G7 governments to promote four key objectives as part of the strategy to establish economic recovery and resilience post-pandemic:
Putting digital at the heart of trade relations;
Building cooperation on ethical and responsible adoption of emerging technologies;
Using digital solutions in the Fight Against Climate Change;
Cooperating on improving digital literacy and participation.
By hosting the G7 Leaders’ Summit in June, the UK can shape these crucial policy directions and support a global economic recovery.
Tech7 call on their respective governments to seek support for these policy actions and their inclusion in the G7 statement.
