Second Stakeholder Consultation with partners from India, Brazil and Mexico


To achieve balanced and fair rules for the digitalisation of the economy, it is necessary to have a platform for regular exchange with our partners and stakeholders from the public and private sector.

On 28 September 2021, the Digital Dialogues Stakeholder Consultation reached a milestone in this effort. Around 100 participants from businesses, science and politics shared their knowledge and discussed opportunities as well as challenges regarding conditions for the digital economy.

In discussion rounds focused on India, Brazil and Mexico respectively, stakeholders exchanged their opinions on needs and chances in the countries’ digital economies. Discussion topics included data protection, cross-border flow of data, implementation of 5G, emerging technologies as well as new cooperations. The experts benefited from the important knowledge exchange between different sectors.

Outcomes of the Stakeholder Consultation

The yearly Stakeholder Consultation is an essential part of the bilateral International Digital Dialogues. It defines relevant follow-up measures. The ideas and challenges that arise during the consultation are key for the further development of the dialogues with our partner countries. They are the basis for the bilateral Work Plans.

We look forward to your participation and input in our next Stakeholder Consultations.
