The Digital Assembly 2015 took place on the 17-18 June 2015 in Riga, Latvia. Its main topic was One Europe, One Digital Single Market. Leyla Arsan, CEO of TAGES attended the Workshop 4: A Digital Single Market for businesses and consumers.
The Digital Assembly 2015 was mainly focused on Digital Single Market and its complements, such as; digital skills, trust and confidence, creative content, ensuring access and connectivity, building the digital economy for businesses and consumers, promoting e-society and digitizing European industries and enterprises. Besides these topics geoblocking, new data protection rules-cybersecurity, modernizing VAT, audiovisual rules and telecom rules were also discussed during the assembly.
Digital Agenda Scoreboard has reached its targets and Europen Union included Digital Single Market to its initiatives. However, if Turkey, as Leyla Arsan mentioned at the end of the event, doesn’t work towards these topics, will fail to enter the Digital Single Market which will lead to a huge loss of capital.
