Action programme on digitalisation

The digital transformation of our economy and society is well underway. We want to shape this rapid transition and drive it forward. Thanks to the Action Programme on Digitalisation, we are able to turn our Digital Strategy 2025 into reality - through a range of measures that we have already taken, some that we are in the process of taking, and those that we see and important next steps.

G20 – Shaping digitalisation at global level

If we want to use digitalisation for the good of all people, we need an international framework. As part of its G20 Presidency, Germany will therefore be holding what will be the first ever meeting of the G20 Digital Ministers, taking place in Düsseldorf from 6-7 April, entitled ‘Digitalisation: Policies for a Digital Future’.
