The Forum has reached its eighth edition and this time it is organized by the Caribbean Economic Commission (CIPAL) together with the Uruguayan government.

During the inauguration, Jose Salazar, Executive Secretary of ECLAC, pointed out that for the process of digital inclusion to prosper, political will is essential.

In this way, the population, companies and government institutions can access and adopt the technologies, reducing inequalities.

“We must work to reduce inequality and create wealth, which goes through productive development policies and digital transformation policies in a very important way,” the official said.

In this sense, he viewed the use of digital technologies as positive, and considered the challenges they pose in terms of inequality, privacy, security, competition and data protection.

The conference will run until November 18 and will include participation from representatives of the Uruguayan government, the private sector, the technical community and civil society in the region.

The debate will focus on topics such as smart cities, digital government, citizen participation and collaboration and strategic alliances for new digitisation.
