The event will mark the completion of an intense period of analysis and reflection on the opportunities and challenges of the digital transformation for people, societies and the global economy.

The OECD will present the synthesis report of its Going Digital project at the conference, which will also be an opportunity to set the course for the future global digital agenda.
