"This will be the most important event in the digital industry this year," Szubert told reporters ahead of the 16th annual Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

The main topic up for discussion will be "internet united" in the sense of the World Wide Web being available to everyone and "connecting all its users into one community," according to the gov.pl website.

The summit's agenda includes issues such as free internet access, the security of IT systems, sustainable economic development and human rights in the context of digitization, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency has reported.

Officials including Poland's President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki are expected to take part in the conference, alongside the UN secretary-general and digitization ministers from around the world.
