The Welsh Government will host a discussion on digital transformation, a priority for the EU as reflected in the European Commission’s Digital Single Market strategy on Tuesday, 1 March 2016 from 09.00 – 12.30 pm in the Maelbeek Room, Résidence Palace, International Press Centre, Rue de la Loi/Wetstraat 155, 1040 Brussels.
This event will consider aspects of the strategy of particular relevance to regional and local governments, notably how infrastructure – including smarter cities and the roll-out of superfast broadband – is developing. It will provide an overview of the Digital Single Market and its effect on consumers and organisations.
The discussion will also explore the increased scrutiny of online activity, such as the use of search engines and social media, by the EU institutions, and illustrate how companies are interacting with consumers.
