Déclaration ministérielle de Cancún sur l’économie numérique
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.
This report presents new evidence on how Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are changing the demand for skills at work. The diffusion of ICTs is also changing the way work is carried out, increasing the raising the demand for “soft skills” such as communication, self-direction and problem solving. While these findings offer some new and interesting insights, the report discusses various avenues for further analysis.
This report examines the effects of investments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) on total labour demand, labour demand by skill level, and labour demand by industry in selected OECD countries over the period 1990-2012.
This paper provides new evidence on the development of online platforms and explores the emergence of new forms of work in the digital economy. It finds that the transformative effects of online platforms may challenge existing institutions and might necessitate reviews of policy and regulatory frameworks in many areas.
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.
Although ICT is the fastest growing sector in the world, many millions of people are losing out on the opportunities offered by the digital age simply because they do not have access to digital technologies. In fact, more than half the world’s people are offline. Europe is not immune to this problem.
This report presents a framework for analysing Internet openness, the factors that influence it, and initial qualitative and quantitative evidence on its effects. Among the key findings are that Internet openness consists of many technical, economic and social elements and that overall openness is vital for reaping the Internet’s potential benefits.
This report analyses the importance of the adoption and the effective use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for enabling digital innovation for growth and inclusiveness, and discusses the role of public policies in stimulating such adoption and use.
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.
