The Digital Assembly 2019 is a forum for stakeholders to take stock of the achievements of the Digital Single Market Strategy, draw lessons and to exchange views on the contours of a future digital policy. The event is also a great opportunity to showcase how digital is transforming our societies and economies, and how it can help bring positive change to our lives. It is co-organised by the European Commission and the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The Visegrad countries as the members of the Union are contributing to the commitment of establishing the Digital Single Market and want to ensure that people and companies and also researchers fully benefit from the digital transformation.
