Based on the inputs from the first parallel session, the second parallel session offered potential solutions to the problems. The session began with a panel of six experts coming from the Western Balkans region and the European Union, with various backgrounds. They shared their perspectives on digital transformation in the regional economies. One of the experts, Rozalinda Stojova from North Macedonia, emphasised that the “number one step in the digital transformation is that it needs to be regulated”, underlining that policy makers need to take action and create or modify regulations.

To keep up with the European Union, economies cannot avoid digitization. As a result, it is crucial to educate institutions and the public on the process. Additionally, data protection and processing have been highlighted as key elements of the process.

“It was a great pleasure to moderate panel on digitaltransformation within the POLICY ANSWERS Horizon project with a six fantastic speakers from the Western Balkans and beyond. Thanks Tuan Trinh, PhD, Anne T., Goran Pastrovic, Rosalinda Stojova, Vesna Bengin and Aleksandar Mastilovic for inspiring talks. Digital Transition in public and private sector go hand in hand. Neither of those two should take the lead but work in mutual interaction – one of the highlights.” (Sanja Popovic-Pantic)
