Now the European Union is implementing a strategy of a single digital market.

Operators need to adapt to the new working conditions and be prepared for further metamorphosis. Deputy State Secretary at Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development of the Republic of Latvia Edmunds Belskis will share the latest news from Brussels: how the program “Digital Europe” has been implemented and what priorities are identified for the coming years.

The Lithuanian Cable Television Association and the largest Latvian operator Lattelecom will share their impressions as well.
Hot debates are expected at the Forum of broadcasting organizations. The complex geopolitical situation and information wars hurt the business. And TV has appeared on the front line: channels are switched off; the severe political decisions are made. How all this affects the business of operators and what’s next? After all, modern technologies are not standing still: all bans can be easily gone around connecting to the desired content via the Internet. The debate will be attended by representatives of government agencies and operators.
