Today, a global coalition of tech and business groups including JBCE urged G7 leaders to champion free data flows and other key digital priorities, and harness the benefits of the digital economy and speed the worldwide recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in advance of the April G7 Digital and Technology Ministerial on April 28-29.

In their recommendations for G7 Leaders, associations highlighted the critical connection between embracing these digital recommendations and addressing worldwide challenges, including the COVID-19 recovery, ensuring a functioning global economy, and fighting climate change.

Also, the recommendations follow an earlier call by global companies including Mastercard, SoftBank and IBM calling on the G7 to initiate a new Data and Tech Forum to find solutions to global technology challenges.
