Description

The ongoing digital transformation of the economy and society holds many promises to spur innovation, generate efficiencies and improve services, and in doing so boost growth. The ICT sector and the content and media sector, collectively known as “information industries”, play a key role in this regard, driving digital transformation and contributing to economic growth. Digital technologies empower people by increasing access to information and enabling new forms of social engagement. But such benefits come with other challenges, as digital transformation changes the nature and structure of organisations, markets and communities, and raises concerns about equity and inclusion.
