Who we are
Together, our mission is to foster the development of a sustainable digital economy that generates employment, stimulates entrepreneurship and is capable of responding innovatively to the challenges posed by technological advancement, as well as to the growing needs of consumers. Through an aggregating vision, we seek to identify, promote and share good sectoral practices which meet the expectations and needs of all agents involved in our value chain, from platforms to couriers and business partners to customers.
Ensuring the creation of an innovative, vibrant and sustainable ecosystem involves promoting the creation of a comprehensive dialogue platform that allows open, informed interactions between all those involved, including legislators and regulators, in order to find legislative solutions to the challenges of the digital world, effectively and concretely. This includes defining a fair regulatory framework that creates competitiveness and includes everyone, working towards the digital transformation of the national economy.
