> About the Ministerial

The 2016 Ministerial Meeting, 21-23 June, in Cancún, Mexico, aims to move the OECD digital agenda forward in four key policy areas that are critical to the growth of the digital economy:

  • Internet openness and innovation
  • Trust in the digital economy
  • Building global connectivity
  • Jobs and Skills in the digital economy

8 years after the OECD Ministerial on the Future of the Internet Economy in Seoul, this High-Level event in Mexico will play an essential role in forging consensus around OECD countries’ policies for the future of an open and inclusive Internet. This Ministerial will also provide a visible opportunity to showcase the efficiency of the OECD’s multi-stakeholder advisory structure, which includes Internet technical (ITAC), business (BIAC), civil society (CSISAC) and trade union (TUAC) actors.

> ITAC Forum: 21 June 2016

The Internet Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC) will hold a full-day Forum on 21 June, as an official pre-event to the OECD Ministerial.
