Kick-Off and Technical Exchange Event for the EU-LAC Digital Alliance in Central America

The two-day Kick-off and Technical Exchange for the EU-LAC Digital Alliance in Central America “Towards a Human-Centered Digital Transformation in Central America and the European Union” in El Salvador will bring together technical experts from partner organizations, such as government institutions, private sector, civil society and academia from Central America as well as EU representatives (EEAS, DG INTPA) and European implementation and project partners (Expertise France, FIIAPP, eGA, GIZ, EUreCA, ITU) to introduce the new TEI EU-LAC Digital Alliance component for Central America. A crucial part of the component will be the set-up of a Central American Secretariat in Costa Rica facilitated by an additional EU funding and executed by GIZ as part of the TEI “Policy Dialogues” component. The aim of the event is to introduce the new component and align the thematic areas of the partners (FIIAPP, eGA, Expertise France, GIZ) with sub-regional stakeholders. Ideally, the event should result in the identification of potential intervention areas for common reference frameworks and further policy dialogues.

Speakers: Carlos Vargas, e-Governance Expert, eGA; Jean-Marie Chenou, Cybersecurity Expert, Expertise France; Maria Rosario Heras Carrasco, Data Governance Expert, FIIAPP; Leonel Tapia, Inclusive Connectivity Expert, GIZ.
