ABOUT AMCHAM COMMITTEES
AmCham Committees represent the Chamber’s long-term strategic commitments, while the Taskforces are established in response to immediate policy changes and the corresponding arising needs of the business sector. Together, the Committees and Taskforces ensure that members’ voices are heard in public debate while positioning themselves as a reliable partner in the public consultation processes.
Digital Transformation Committee
Since its inception, the DT Committee has prioritized the promotion, development, and implementation of projects driving the digital transformation of the public sector, in addition to measures for innovation-friendly regulation.

Part of its efforts are also focused on creating and promoting initiatives to raise the public’s digital and cyber security awareness.

Ultimately, the Committee directs its focus on monitoring the process of harmonizing the Macedonian legislation with the European Union acquis, while committee members provide their expertise to relevant bodies on this subject.
