As a common phenomenon, digital transformation is triggering a wave of digital economy development in various countries, but at the same time brand-new governance issues and governance challenges have emerged, promoting the significance of platform, data and algorithm governance. As important global emerging markets, the BRICS countries have also experienced the rapid development of the digital economy and they now face common but distinctive (country-specific) governance needs. In this context, it is of great significance to promote the comparison and adoption of experience among BRICS countries in the field of digital economy governance in order to improve national policies and to achieve multilateral coordination.
In view of this, the Center for Industrial Development and Environmental Governance (CIDEG) at Tsinghua University and the BRICS Competition Law and Policy Center jointly hold an academic seminar to share the experience of respective countries and to promote cross-border exchanges in digital economy governance.
Time: September 8th, afternoon (time TBC)
Venue: Tsinghua University, School of Public Policy and Management, Wushunde Building, Meeting Room TBC.
