bitkom & [digital.global]: Closing the Global Digital Divide

Accompanying the Global South on its path to access to powerful Internet and the skills to use digital technologies safely is not just a question of equity: Better connectivity and the teaching of digital skills create great potential for growth and development. This is precisely what European companies, associations and the German government are already working on hand in hand – in numerous projects around the world. We talked about this at our online panel on “Global Digital Divides,” which we organized together with bitkom to mark the German Digital Day.
