Beyond infrastructure and internet access progress, digital connectivity is a fundamental tool for innovation, inclusion, and competitiveness in Latin America and the Caribbean. However, the journey towards harnessing its advantages is far from straightforward; mere digital infrastructure does not ensure prosperity. Find out the digital status of the region and learn from experts about the opportunities, challenges, and examples of how to connect better for the benefit of all.

William Maloney, Chief Economist for Latin America and the Caribbean at the World Bank, discusses with high-level experts the opportunities emerging from digital technologies to provide development possibilities for vulnerable and marginalized communities. For this to happen, governments must make connectivity affordable, reliable, and accessible while developing the skills to use new technologies.
