Participants in the third Western Balkan Digital Summit currently taking place online from 26 to 28 October and hosted by the government of Albania, have highlighted the importance of digital transformation and connectivity for the countries in the region, especially in the context of the coronavirus pandemic.

The closing ministerial meeting will be held on 2 November, when a Memorandum of Understanding on regional interoperability and trust services in the Western Balkan region and a Memorandum of Understanding on a 5G roadmap for digital transformation in the Western Balkans are expected to be adopted.

Majlinda Bregu, secretary-general of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), which supports the summit, opened the virtual conference gathering officials of the region’s governments, the European Commission, representatives of the business community, and other players.

In the aim of making the digital agenda successful, the RCC will, as Bregu said, focus on contributing to network connectivity, digital skills and regional interoperability in the Western Balkans. (
