The agenda identifies six concrete actions which Bitkom urges G20 nations to act upon in the coming year. In the first item, Bitkom called for broadband internet to be made available across all nations and for the 5G mobile standard to be rolled out worldwide. In addition, it urged the G20 to develop uniform data security standards, and to abstain from cybersecurity attacks.
