Digital economy

Honolulu Agenda and Speaker's Presentations

 

SHERATON WAIKIKI RESORT, HONOLULU, HI, U.S.
14-16 JANUARY 2003

Background

The OECD has been analysing and providing policy recommendations on the development of the information technology and communications sectors and their impacts for over two decades. Today, grasping the implications of information and communications technologies for the economy and society is a crucial issue for the Organisation.

The OECD recognised early on the need to promote the development of electronic commerce as a major platform for economic growth, expansion of trade, organisational efficiency and consumer choice. A broad-ranging policy debate was necessary, bringing in all the major stakeholders. The series began in Turku, Finland (1997) - starting the dialogue and identifying barriers. This led to the Ottawa Ministerial Conference (1998) - setting the action plan. The next year the OECD organised a stocktaking conference in Paris (1999) - broadening the dialogue. The creation of the DOT Force and the declarations at the G8 summit in Okinawa in 2000 was significant. The OECD therefore made global inclusion in the electronic economy a theme of the next conference, the Emerging Market Economy Forum in Dubai (2001) - going Global. The present event, the OECD Global Forum: "Policy Frameworks For The Digital Economy", will widen the scope still further.

The OECD organised this event in partnership with APEC. The organisations share many common goals and their collaboration goes back a long way in the domain of information and communication technologies, for example, the first major international conference on the Global Information Infrastructure was jointly organised by the OECD, APEC and PECC in Vancouver, Canada in February 1995.
