The digital revolution is at an unprecedented turning point for the future of humankind. It is our common responsibility to work together to find innovative, practical and sustainable solutions to tackle the challenges ahead and effectively harness the potential of technologies. That is why France is both very proud and delighted to host, after Swizerland and before Germany, the 2018 edition of the Internet Governance Forum in order to shape a safe, inclusive, and democratic digital future, an Internet of Trust.

Emmanuel Macron, President of France
