Going Digital in Latvia analyses recent developments in Latvia’s digital economy,
reviews policies related to digitalisation and make recommendations to increase policy
coherence in this area, based on the OECD Going Digital Integrated Policy Framework.
The review uses strategic foresight to explore three alternative future scenarios,
which could result from the digital transformation of the global economy and society.
It also examines the availability and quality of communication networks and services
in Latvia as well as related policies and regulations. Further, it reviews trends
in digital technology usage among individuals, businesses and the government, and
examines policies to foster diffusion. Finally, the review analyses opportunities
and challenges raised by digitalisation in key areas, from innovation and skills to
digital security and data governance, and evaluates policy responses to these changes
