Find out about the highlights of the 2023 Report on the state of the Digital Decade
On 27 September, the European Commission published the first report on the state of the Digital Decade. This report assesses the European Union’s progress towards a successful digital transformation for its people and describes how the European Union is advancing towards the agreed targets and objectives, for businesses and the environment, as outlined in the decisions establishing the Digital Decade Policy Programme 2023.
The first part of the report reviews the latest digital policy developments and European Union's progress towards the established goals and objectives. It also includes the monitoring of the European Declaration on Digital Rights and Principles for the Digital Decade, translating the vision of the European Union for digital transformation into principles and commitments. Each country has a separate report represented in an annex to provide a more detailed overview of the country’s progress toward the Digital Decade objectives and targets.
The report states that the success of the Digital Decade is going to be critical for the EU’s future prosperity and that achieving the EU’s Digital Decade agenda can potentially unlock over 2.8 trillion euros in economic value, which is equivalent to 21% of the EU’s current economy. It also highlights the need to accelerate and strengthen collective efforts in digital tools, skills, and infrastructure, using policy and investment. Finally, the report includes concrete recommendations to Member States that are at different stages of adopting their national strategic roadmaps and making adjustments in the future.
