The video conference had the theme "Enabling Democratic Governance Through Technology", in the context of Romania's holding the CoD's current Presidency. The central objective of the event was to share good practices on the use of technology to improve and support democratic governance.

"The phenomenon of fake news, misinformation and confusion are more present than ever in our societies, in the context of the current crisis. A positive digital democracy can be strengthened by exchanging good practices and lessons learned on how to counter online misinformation, on how to develop self-regulation functions in social media, and all this while being more proactive in terms of accountability and transparency standards," the minister said, according to the speech broadcast by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE), written by agerpres.ro.
