The German Ministry of Economy and Energy has published a declaration on innovation for a digital future. Topics included the promotion of Industry 4.0, intelligent mobility (such as 5th generation mobile networks), and privacy and data security as part of digital sovereignty. The declaration supports the idea of a European digital single market and better technical data protection through the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The declaration also appeals to state authorities to be more open to digitalisation in order to improve German competitiveness.
