Digital Governance, Security and Connectivity
Dennis Snower had the honor to address the EU Ministers for Consumer Protection at the Informal Meeting of the Ministers for Consumer Protection on December 7, 2020 with a focus on the European Commission's New Consumer Agenda. The meeting was chaired by Christine Lambrecht, German Federal Minister of Justice and Consumer Protection, as part of Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2020. In his keynote speech on “Digitalization and the platform economy: a reaction to the new Consumer Agenda”, Dennis Snower provided food for thought on the topic of digital transformation and European cooperation, proposing that the New Consumer Agenda would benefit from a policy approach that directly addresses the issue of third-party financed digital barter, as proposed in the discussion paper “Revisiting Digital Governance”.
