Agenda for Growth and Development in Uruguay
The objective of this TC is to contribute to the analysis and policy recommendations for growth and development in Uruguay. Specifically, this TC proposes the analysis and road maps of determining areas for medium and long-term growth of Uruguay, particularly in relation to new digital technologies, and thus support the strategic and operational planning of the IDB to contribute to high rates of sustained growth. These areas include: i) digital innovation and incorporation of ICTs in SMEs, ii) education, labor market and digital skills, and iii) productivity and exports in the knowledge intensive service sector. Although these topics will be addressed in a focused manner, the simultaneous coordination of these approaches will be essential to achieve integrated and multisectoral results that aim to obtain diagnoses and road maps with common and coordinated objectives. In this sense, it is expected that this TC will provide the necessary inputs to generate a strategy of public policies and interventions aimed at sustained growth and development of Uruguay. It is also expected to provide important inputs for the preparation of the CDC and the Bank's country strategy with the country planned for the next two years.

The concept of Digital Transformation can be described as adopting business processes and practices to help the organization compete effectively in an increasingly digital world.  This definition of digital transformation has two important implications for managers: First, it means that digital transformation is fundamentally about how your business responds to digital trends that are occurring whether or not you initiated them, like them, or want them.  Second, it means that how an organization implements technology is only a small part of digital transformation. In cases where digital transformation does involve implementing new technologies, technology is only part of the story.  The digital transformation requires that institutions and all its workflows and org charts be transformed in order to build and sustain digital services. Thus, there is a clear need to provide capacity building to all stakeholders in various areas associated with the digital transformation.
