Description


On the 28th and 29th of June 2019, the leaders of the G20 will gather in Osaka as Japan – the world’s champion of human-centric technology as exemplified by “Society 5.0” - hosts its first ever G20 Summit. The “premier forum for international economic cooperation”, whose participating nations represent 80% of global GDP, deals with a wide range of issues facing our world: development, climate, energy, digital economy, employment, in addition to other drivers of the international economy. In parallel, France has taken over from Canada at the helm of the G7: both countries have been actively promoting international cooperation in AI. Along with Singapore and Japan, Australia is spearheading an initiative to negotiate a global agreement on e-commerce under WTO auspices. Last but not least, through the Christchurch Call and other efforts, many governments are acting to tackle online terrorist or extremist content. There is no dearth of evidence that governments, and trade diplomats in particular, are increasingly keen to make the most of cutting-edge technology for the benefit of all.

In the run-up to the G20 Summit, it is important to make sense of these developments and hear from the best source how they will impact our daily life as well as the way we do business in Europe. To this effect, these high-ranking diplomats have kindly agreed to share the views of their respective government:

  • E. Mr Kazuo Kodama, Ambassador of Japan to the EU

  • H.E. Mr Justin Brown, Ambassador of Australia to the EU

  • Mr Pascal Rogard, Counsellor, Digital, Telecommunications and Postal services, French Permanent Representation to the EU

  • Mr Stephane Lambert, Counsellor, Head of Trade, Economic and Science & Technology Policy, Mission of Canada to the EU

We invite you to the debate which will be moderated by Ms. Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director General, DIGITALEUROPE.

We hope you can join !

This debate will be held under the Chatham House rule. For more information on our Digital in Practice Programme (DiPP) click here.
