Digital Economy Ministerial Declaration in Spanish
This joint initiative by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the OECD seeks to encourage the expansion of broadband networks and services in the region, supporting a coherent and cross-sectorial approach, to maximise their benefits for economic and social development. Drawing on a wealth of experience from LAC and OECD countries, the Toolkit outlines the main policy objectives in this area and provides guidance for their measurement, an overview of developments in the region, and a compilation of good practices in several areas related to broadband policy making.
This comprehensive volume encompasses a wealth of areas including digital strategies, regulatory frameworks, spectrum management, competition and infrastructure bottlenecks, broadband access, affordability, sector taxation, inclusion, convergence, regional integration, education, skills, business uptake, entrepreneurship, local content, e-health, digital government, consumer policy, and digital security and privacy.
Les 21-23 juin 2016, des ministres vont se rassembler à Cancún, Mexique, pour une réunion ministérielle de l'OCDE sur l'Economie numérique : Innovation, Croissance et Prospérité sociale, pour faire avancer l'agenda numérique dans 4 domaines clés essentiels à la croissance de cette économie : ouverture d'Internet, confiance, connectivité mondiale, emplois et compétences.
The June 2016 OECD Ministerial Meeting on the Digital Economy in Cancun, Mexico will discuss online platforms. Opportunities coming from online platforms not only create innovative forms of production, consumption, collaboration and sharing between individuals and organisations, but also promote economic benefits and employment opportunities thanks to the digital economy by creating a fast-moving business environment.
From 23 to 30 June 2016, an OECD Global Awareness Campaign will be carried out on Window Covering Cord Safety. The initiative aims at informing consumers about persistent, hidden and severe dangers associated with corded window coverings and encouraging preventative action in homes, including vacation homes or holiday dwellings where young children live or visit.
The Internet of Things represents the next step in convergence between ICTs and the economy on an unprecedented scale, with estimates indicating that 25 billion devices will be connected by 2020. This aggregated data can drive innovation, research and marketing, holding the promise to substantially contribute to further economic growth and social prosperity.

This report discusses measures that can help to ensure that the diffusion of digital technologies is accompanied by the development of the skills needed for their effective use, an increase in the responsiveness of national skills development systems to changes in skills demand and of new learning opportunities created by digital technologies.
The open Internet combined with today’s emerging technologies has launched the information revolution and is powering the global digital economy. Everyone has a stake in that development, both as individuals and in the organizations in which we serve and affiliate ourselves.
