RG-T3129 : Digital Economy Investments for Social Development
Project Status: Closed
The expansion of the digital economy in Latin America and the Caribbean is emergent. While there are some public policies aimed at promoting the adoption of new technologies, there has not been a dynamic and sustainable process to foster the transformation of government, industries and talent, among other areas, which would equip countries to cease the opportunities and address the challenges. The advent of new technologies presents a unique opportunity to reduce the costs and improve the quality of social service delivery. This regional TC will fund the required developments to leverage the Bank's work with governments in the region to promote the emergence of digital solutions, public policy and regulation in the social sectors.
