At the G20 meeting, participants will discuss the challenges of digitalising global economy, such as free movement of data, human-centred artificial intelligence, digital security, and creating more flexible solutions for digital economy to encourage countries to support innovation at the government level.

A joint declaration of ministers of digital economy and trading, prepared in cooperation with Estonian specialists, will be approved at this meeting. The countries confirm with the declaration that they must start improving their capabilities of digital governance.

In Tsukuba, Prime Minister Ratas will meet with Masatoshi Ishida, the Japanese Minister for Internal Affairs, and Hiroshige Sekō, the Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry, to discuss bilateral relations in digital solutions and the economy.
