Meeting topic: 

The accessibility and digital connectivity across borders is one of the major aims of EUSALP.
The alpine fibre-optics backbone is an international project idea to develop Cross- border connections and create more  Internet Exchange Point (IXPs) enabling: 
1)    Access to services by ultrabroadband connectivity
2)    Foster synergies with local TLC
3)    Open the market to new opportunities (DC, SMEs,…)

During the meeting we will have the opportunity to have the precious contribution of the Top-Ix Consortium and the WorldBank.
