EU, China hold first large-scale digital dialogue event

European Union and China took part in a "high-level" Digital Dialogue event, ahead of the videoconference between the EU and Beijing leaders, scheduled to take place next week, the European Commission said in a statement on Thursday.

The call, organized by European Commission Vice-President for A Europe Fit for the Digital Age, Margrethe Vestager (pictured), and the Vice Premier of China, Liu He, covered, among others, the topics of digital taxation, e-commerce, and the artificial intelligence, the statement read.

"The EU and China will both play a role in defining how global technological developments will go forward. The dialogue is therefore necessary to foster cooperation, but also to address divergences we have, like on reciprocity, data protection and fundamental rights," Vestager noted.
