At the Riga Summit, stakeholders will develop a combined strategy, identify goals, and initiate concrete actions to bring about this crucial vision for a digital single market without language barriers, which is instrumental for empowering Europe in the global world.
In the last decade, Europe has successfully removed many restrictions to the Digital Single Market - one of the top priorities for Europe. Money, goods, and people may now flow freely across national borders, enriching the European Union as a whole.
Several restrictions still remain, however, to creating a connected Digital Single Market and allowing all citizens to benefit from a more integrated Europe. One of the last remaining obstacles is language barriers.
This Directorate-General supports the development and use of information and communication technologies. The DG focuses on the accessability of ICT applications on a broad scale in order for European citizens to benefit fully from ICT. Also, the use of ICT must improve the competitiveness of the EU and stimulate economic growth.
