Key Issues

​The Fifth Ministerial Conference on the Information Society in Latin America and the Caribbean is being jointly organized by the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the Government of Mexico. The Conference will examine the achievements of eLAC –a mechanism of political dialogue which began in 2005–towards strengthening the process of regional integration in the digital field. Among the issues to be considered are: the technological dynamism and trends defined by the ubiquity of the Internet, technological convergence, social networks, the digital economy, e-Government and big data analysis, without neglecting the needs pending in terms of access and use of ICTs. The renewal of eLAC implies the need to agree on a digital agenda for the whole region (eLAC2018) to strengthen policies for a society based on knowledge with greater inclusion, equity and environmental sustainability.

UNCTAD will participate in the panel related to social inclusion and digital technologies.

Co-organized with:UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and Presidencia de la República de México, Coordinación de la Estrategia Digital Nacional
