OECD work on consumer product safety is aimed at strengthening information sharing on safety issues across borders.
Digitalisation is having a profound impact on our societies. It offers many opportunities as a driver of innovation in the private and public sectors. We are already seeing, for example, how our tax administrations are benefiting from these new technologies to enhance services to taxpayers, improve tax compliance and tackle tax evasion and avoidance.
Si l’infrastructure internet s’améliore et l’utilisation des outils numériques gagne du terrain, les progrès restent inégaux selon les pays, les entreprises et les sociétés. Pour tirer le meilleur parti de la transformation numérique au service de l’économie et de la société, il convient d’élargir l’accès aux opportunités qu’offrent les technologies et d’aider les retardataires à combler leurs lacunes.
This workshop, taking place in Copenhagen on 2-3 October 2017, will examine how enhanced access to data can maximise social and economic benefits while addressing legitimate concerns of individuals, organisations and governments. Dedicated sessions will cover open data, community-based data sharing agreements, data markets and data portability.
The 2017 edition of the OECD E-Leaders meeting will discuss how governments can best adapt to the growing role of advanced technologies in service delivery. Delegates will discuss the implications of the digital transformation in governments, including the skills base, the data infrastructure and approaches to the commissioning of ICT goods and services.
As one of the most dynamic regions in the world with an increasingly diversified economy, an expanding middle class, and a young and literate population, Southeast Asia is well positioned to embrace the ongoing global digital transformation. Digitalisation can spur the much needed innovation and productivity growth across many activities, transform public services, and improve well-being for all citizens.
Greater access and use of data creates a wide array of policy issues, such as privacy and consumer protection, open data access, skills and employment, and measurement to name a few. The OECD is undertaking extensive analysis on the role of data in promoting innovation, growth and well-being.
This paper contributes to our understanding of digital technology usage by assessing changing patterns in the use of hardware and software and identifying the extent to which various plant characteristics and policy environments correlate with ICT investment. The results suggest notable changes in the use of a number of digital technologies across countries between 2000 and 2012.
The 2017 OECD Forum takes place after a series of political upheavals few would have predicted scarcely twelve months ago. Divides have become more apparent between metropolises and capital cities on the one hand, and towns and villages on the other, between Millennials and pensioners, between the haves and the have-nots, between the best and the rest.
