The Latin American Economic Outlook 2020 written by OECD highlights the role of the digital transformation as a tool that can help foster development in the region, particularly in the context of the current Covid-19 crisis, and emphasises that international partnerships are essential to reaping the bene of the transformation.
Digital technologies can contribute to improving productivity, help tackle climate change, foster inclusiveness and transform public institutions. The agenda is ambitious and requires the implementation of a comprehensive approach aligning national development strategies with digital agendas. More than ever international cooperation is needed to reach the full potential of digital transformation in the region.
The potential of digital transformation to address these challenges in LAC is huge, as well as to support a sustainable recovery of the region from the current crisis.
