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.
The OECD Digital Economy Outlook 2017 looks at the potential and risks associated with the rapid development of AI and robots. Their use will bring new opportunities to raise incomes, create new types of jobs and businesses and improve economic and social well-being, but there will be costs and bumps along the way.
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.
One decade on, and technology continues to race ahead – at an ever faster speed. The social impacts have also become more pronounced. Digital innovation enables applications and services in a wide range of sectors, including in science, healthcare, agriculture, government and cities.
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.
Norway has long used technology to streamline processes within the public sector and bring the government closer to citizens and businesses. Now the country is going further, seeking to transform its public sector through the full assimilation of digital technologies. The goal is to make it more efficient, collaborative, user- and data-driven, and better able to respond to the changing needs and expectations of citizens and businesses. This review analyses the efforts under way and provides policy advice to support the Norwegian government in implementing digital government.
The OECD Review of Telecommunication Policy and Regulation in Mexico, released in 2012, provided a comprehensive examination of the sector at the time, highlighting potential areas for regulatory and policy reform. Since then, the Mexican telecommunication sector has experienced substantial progress both from a legal and regulatory perspective, but also with respect to current market dynamics. The changes derive, to an important extent, from the reform that has taken place in Mexico since 2013, which closely reflect the 2012 OECD recommendations.
This report assesses subsequent market developments in the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors in Mexico, evaluates the implementation of the 2012 OECD recommendations, and puts forward a number of recommendations for the future. It records the remarkable progress made in implementing policy and regulatory changes and identifies areas where more can be done to continue the momentum that has brought tangible benefits to the people of Mexico.
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.
