The meeting will discuss various issues related to digitalization, including the emergence of issues that need to be addressed and the dramatic change in the global environment surrounding digital affairs, such as Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

The ministers will discuss a framework for operationalizing the 'Data Free Flow with Trust (DFFT),' in cooperation with the G7 and other countries while respecting national regulations, enhancing transparency, ensuring interoperability, and promoting public-private partnerships. The operationalization of DFFT is expected to help SMEs and others to safely and securely use data from around the world, enabling them to develop cross-border businesses.
