A digital recovery plan for Europe

Thursday, 1 October 2020 (9.00 – 11.00 CEST)

The last few months have demonstrated that the future is digital. As we continue to tackle the fallout of the global health crisis, it has become evident that digital solutions can ensure economic continuity and resilience for the society of tomorrow. Digital policies should be adapted to improve digital infrastructures, attract investments and promote technological innovations. AmCham EU’s 2020 Transatlantic Digital Economy Conference will focus on the accelerated digital transformation and showcase how the right approach to digital policymaking could help Europe’s economy flourish.
