Taipei, Nov. 10 (CNA) A second round of the Taiwan-European Union (EU) Dialogue on Digital Economy is scheduled to be staged in December, albeit in virtual format due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Development Council (NDC) announced Tuesday.

The annual dialogue, first launched last year to enhance Taiwan-EU exchanges in the digital economy field, was originally set to be held in Taipei this June but was postponed due to the pandemic, said NDC Deputy Minister Yu Chien-hwa (游建華).

The two sides recently agreed to hold the meeting in virtual format next month, with the exact date yet to be announced, said Yu.

The upcoming dialogue will focus on issues concerning overall digital policy, data economics, information security certification, artificial intelligence and blockchain, among other topics, according to Yu.    [FULL  STORY]
