Implementing Digital Dialogues
The German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) is committed to creating a common international framework for digital transformation. Its goal is to make the opportunities afforded by digitalisation available to everyone and thus contribute to sustainable economic development.
BMDV pursues this goal in bilateral Digital Dialogues with important partner countries, including Brazil, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Kenya, Republic of Korea, Singapore and South Africa. For the German government, the Digital Dialogues represent the most important instrument of digital policy cooperation with third countries outside the EU. They serve to compare digital policy agendas, address specific issues in bilateral economic relations and develop joint positions for multilateral forums.
On behalf of BMDV, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH advises and supports the Digital Dialogues. GIZ advises BMDV, its partner governments and stakeholders on the Digital Dialogues, provides a secretariat for the Digital Dialogues and contributes to solution-finding by designing, aligning and implementing cooperation activities.
Stakeholders from politics, business, civil society and science continuously exchange on current political and regulatory developments relating to digitalisation. The GIZ team supports the preparation of high-level meetings and technical exchanges. It strengthens the networking and cooperation of stakeholders across borders and sectors. It monitors relevant technological, political and economic developments and provides information about these. And it offers an access point for anyone who wishes to engage.
