„When the world closed down during the pandemic, we realized how connected we all really are: the world, our communities, organizations and we as humans. Our lives and livelihoods depend on these connections and connections can only be built on trust,“ underlined Prime Minister Kaja Kallas.
„A key challenge facing democratic countries is building the physical and digital connections that are trustworthy—hence Trusted Connectivity. The connections of the 21st century are not only about roads and bridges but ever more about the ways we create, transfer, store, and protect data. The Tallinn Digital Summit will provide the stage for political leaders, entrepreneurs, and the tech community to respond to the need for trusted and smart connectivity,“ Kallas added.
Establishing continuity with the recent G7 Summit’s Build Back Better World initiative, the TDS will present the first opportunity for a multi-stakeholder discussion of recent infrastructure initiatives at the highest level.
The Summit will bring together political leaders, policy innovators and prominent entrepreneurs to discuss the digital transformation. The opening speech will be held by Estonian Prime Minister and keynote addresses will be given by Charles Michel, President of the European Council, Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice President of the European Commission, Gina Raimondo, US Secretary of Commerce and Mathias Cormann, Secretary General of the OECD who will also participate in the plenary session with government leaders. This panel will include the Prime Ministers of Australia, Poland, Croatia as well as the Prime Minister and President of Estonia.
