The G20 summit in Bali discusses digital transformation

The Group of 20 major economic powers concluded their two-day summit meeting on the Indonesian island of Bali on Wednesday. In the third and final working session, Heads of State and Government and representatives of the European Union want to talk about the opportunities and risks of digital transformation. The draft closing declaration of the summit states that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transformation of the digital ecosystem and the digital economy.

The tour recognized the importance of these developments in achieving the SDGs. Affordable, high-quality digital communication is essential to digital inclusion and digital transformation. At the same time, a resilient and secure online environment is essential to fostering confidence in the digital economy.

The paper also states that the G20 round recognizes the importance of countering disinformation campaigns and cyber threats and ensuring the security of communication infrastructure. The West often accuses Russia of wanting to destabilize Western governments through disinformation campaigns and supporting hacker attacks on critical infrastructure such as the electricity supply. However, Moscow was not explicitly mentioned in the draft final declaration.
