Digitalization – shaping it sustainably
Federal Minister Wissing held an exchange on international digital policy
In a globally networked world, prosperity and growth increasingly depend on successfully exploiting the potential of digital transformation in all areas of life. With this in mind, joint initiatives were launched on the topics of sustainability and a favorable political framework at the meeting of the G7 digital ministers in Düsseldorf on May 10 and 11, 2022.
The war of aggression on Ukraine is also an Internet war
Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine was of great concern to the ministers at the G7 meeting. Especially because the war is not only taking place on the ground in Ukraine, but also online. The G7 digital ministers responded to this with a declaration on cyber resilience – the ability to withstand attacks on the Internet. In the long term, this will involve the reconstruction of digital infrastructure in Ukraine.
