3SI Digital Conference: Digital Transformation, Smart Infrastructure, Connectivity and Security

Date(s) - 28/04/2022
3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

AmChams in Latvia and Bulgaria in partnership with Digital Poland and Google will hold a Three Seas Initiative (3SI) Digital Conference in advance of the upcoming 3SI Summit in Riga. The conference will take place on April 28 at 15:00-18:00 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Latvija, Riga and will be held in a hybrid format.

The event is building on the successful 3SI Summit in Sofia last year and will focus on digital transformation amid a shifting geopolitical landscape. In addition, it aims to raise awareness about 3SI and its upcoming Summit in Riga in June.

The war in Ukraine has underlined the need for secure digital infrastructure, services and policies in Europe and the importance of a strong transatlantic partnership to strengthen our democracies. 

3SI has developed successfully since its inception as a cooperative platform, providing strong political support for accelerated economic development and enhanced intra-regional and cross-border cooperation and connectivity among 12 EU member states, bordering the Baltic, the Adriatic and the Black Sea. Strategic partnership and synergy of action among member states, the European Union and the United States, will lead to upgrading and modernization of critically important connections in the region.

You may sign up the form below to take part in the event either in-person or online.
