The internet and digital Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are transforming our world rapidly. Both the EU and India have set up their respective digital priority policies to harness the new services and networks so that they address global societal challenges, while supporting sustainable and inclusive growth.
Since 2001, India and the EU have been working closely together in the area of ICT, promoting modern information society. The 2018 EU strategy on India indicated ICT as one of the priority areas for cooperation. Since then, we have been linking up the EU Digital Single Market with Digital India, engaging on a wide ranging of issues such as ICT standardisation, market access, internet governance and research and innovation.
Under the project 'India-EU Cooperation on ICT-Related Standardisation, Policy and Legislation', we have made considerable progress in areas of mutual interest, including 5G; machine-to-machine communications; intelligent transportation systems; software defined and virtualised networks, and security.
