Digital & Technology Ministers

The Digital and Technology Track, led by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, seeks to demonstrate the G7’s ambition to place the needs of open, democratic societies at the heart of the technology debate.

We strive for a trusted, values-driven digital ecosystem that can enhance prosperity in a way that is both sustainable and inclusive. 

The Track focuses on six policy priorities:

  • internet safety
  • telecoms diversification
  • data free flow with trust
  • digital facilitation of trade
  • digital technical standards
  • digital competition

Following the virtual G7 Digital & Technology Ministerial meeting on 28-29 April 2021, ministers declared that our collective recovery from coronavirus must be rooted in a desire to build back a better, more productive and resilient global economy, with digital technology at its heart.
