Conference Looks at Digital Economy in the Agenda of the Bulgarian Presidency of EU Council

Addressing a conference on "Europe at the Forefront of Digital Transformation" in Sofia Monday, the Bulgarian Minister of the Presidency of the EU Council, Liliyana Pavlova, and Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Donchev spoke about the agenda of the Bulgarian Presidency of the EU Council in the first half of 2018.
The forum was organized by the American Chamber in Bulgaria. 
The digital economy is omnipresent, said Pavlova. She enlisted three priorities for the Bulgarian Presidency in this area. The top priority is improving connectivity. The second is building a strong common digital market and adopting a strategy for cyber security. The third is an economy based on free movement and exchange of data, following the adoption of the necessary legislation, she said adding that the legislative process has presently come to a halt. 
"We will aim to see a single authority being set up in the area of electronic communication," said Pavlova. The Bulgarian Ministry of Transport, IT and Communications will have a leading role. 
Bulgaria also wants to see the adoption of an all-European action plan for e-government.
