Dara Calleary, Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation, has set out plans for Ireland’s 6-month chairmanship of the D9+, an informal alliance of Digital Ministers from the digital frontrunner EU Member States.

Ireland will chair the D9+ for the first half of 2024. The D9+ brings together twelve digitally ambitious EU Member States, who are working together to progress the EU Digital Single Market. The four key themes of Ireland’s D9+ Chairmanship will be:

  • effective and coherent digital regulation as a foundation for innovation and growth in the EU
  • the importance of stability and predictability in fostering investment and growth
  • the D9+ as advocates for EU Digital values
  • creating the conditions for EU Unicorns
Commenting the announcement, Minister Calleary said: "As Chair of the D9+ for the first half of 2024, Ireland will work with like-minded countries to push our collective ambitions to lead the digital transformation of the European Union by advancing policies on the four pillars of the EU Digital Decade: digital business, digital infrastructure, digital government, and digital skills."

Digital Ireland Conference
The second Digital Ireland Conference will take place on 18 April in the Hibernia Conference Centre in Dublin Castle, the day before the D9+ Ministerial meeting. The conference will bring together government, industry and academia to exchange views on digital developments in the EU and globally. The overarching themes for discussion will include implementation of digital regulation, Artificial Intelligence and the opportunities of the digital transformation.
