The discussion revolved around how digital technologies can play an important role in expediting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Digital technologies are key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the UN. Accelerating progress towards these Goals requires a global digital transformation. By fostering international collaboration, we can maximise the potential of digitalisation to bolster the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while also mitigating digital risks.

The results of the SDG Digital work will be summarised in the SDG Digital Acceleration Agenda. Its development is necessary to ensure effective comprehensive implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The event will offer tangible illustrations of how digital technologies can be promptly harnessed to attain the SDGs and will provide the means to adeptly strategise digital transformation efforts.

The UN's Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) initiative, consisting of secure, accessible, affordable interconnected digital ecosystems, should be of great help in achieving the SDGs.

"Intersputnik considers modern satellite digital technologies as an effective tool for improving the quality of life of the Earth's population," said Intersputnik Director General Ksenia Drozdova. The principles of equal mutually beneficial international cooperation, which Intersputnik has been following for more than half a century, fully coincide with the ITU and UN programme statements. These principles, combined with the technical resources and highly qualified personnel of Intersputnik, which unites 25 member countries, create unique conditions for the implementation of virtually any digital transformation and SDG projects in all regions of the Earth without exception".

The SDG Digital event was held in anticipation of the 2023 SDG Summit, scheduled for 18-19 September in New York. Organised by the President of the UN General Assembly, this summit will signify the midpoint toward the SDG deadline. The Summit will contribute to a new stage in accelerating this process.
