Speakers included Roberto Viola (Director-General, European Commission), Robert L. Strayer, (Deputy Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of State) and Brendan Carr (Commissioner, FCC). American and European experts from industry, academia, civil society and startup community provided recommendations for the transatlantic regulatory dialogue. Topics included EU and U.S. telecoms reforms, data flows, online platforms, artificial intelligence, cyber security, 5G and cooperation in international organisations.  EU and U.S. regulators welcomed the input from stakeholders and reiterated their shared commitment to a free and open Internet. The EU and the US are “close strategic partners sharing common values. Strengthening the global digital economy is a shared priority … and the private sector is a key partner in this endeavor,” the EU and U.S. confirmed in their joint statement.
