    Launch of the report "Broadband Policies for Latin America and the Caribbean: A Digital Economy Toolkit"

    This presentation is taking place at a critical juncture for Latin America and the Caribbean. Having recorded average annual growth of 4% between 2004 and 2014, in 2015 Latin American GDP shrank by approximately half a point, and is expected to shrink at a slightly higher rate this year (‑0.6%). It is therefore vital to implement structural reforms while seizing the opportunities within our grasp.

    Open Government Data Review of Mexico - Data Reuse for Public Sector Impact and Innovation

    Mexico has developed an ambitious national open data policy to create value from the use and re-use of government data by the public, private and social sectors. Open government data (OGD) has the potential to spur the digital economy, as well as contribute to more efficient public service delivery and greater public engagement. Mexico has demonstrated its commitment to OGD through its close involvement in international open data initiatives. However, it faces challenges in effectively implementing OGD domestically in a way that makes a greater impact on the economy and society. This would require, notably, institutionalizing open data, understanding the demand for government data, reaching out to potential users and working more closely with local governments. To fully realise the potential of open data, it is crucial that public bodies understand the benefits, are fully behind the project and actively participate in its implementation. This report provides an analysis of Mexico’s policies as well as recommendations for achieving its national objectives and making the most of OGD.

    The launch of this report is especially timely, because the question of how we can and should collectively govern the Internet is increasingly relevant. The Internet is now an essential part of our lives and a critical element of the world economy. Internet penetration increased almost sevenfold in the past 15 years - from 6.5% of the world population in 2000 to 43 % in 2015.
