New Background Paper Available About Next Week’s OECD Ministerial Meeting on the Digital Economy

Next week the Internet Society will be participating in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Ministerial Meeting on the Digital Economy from 21-23 June 2016 in Cancun, Mexico.

The meeting is set to define the digital agenda of the 34 OECD member countries for the next few years. It will address key issues under the pillars of trust and security, jobs for the digital age, openness and connectivity.

Many Internet Society members have been engaged in preparations through the different advisory groups to the OECD (ITAC, CSISAC, BIAC and TUAC). For those who’d like to better understand topics that will be discussed in Cancun, we’ve developed a background paper.

As part of the ministerial agenda, our President and CEO Kathy Brown will have the opportunity to speak as a member of the Internet technical community in the Opening Plenary, along with business, civil society and trade unions stakeholders. This will be a good opportunity to emphasize the Internet Society’s Trust Agenda as well as our collaborative approach to Internet governance.

For more information about Internet Society activities, please see our OECD Ministerial event page.  We will be updating that page with additional information and links throughout the week.
