Investment and the Digital Economy

Tackling the development challenges arising from the digital economy will require proactive policies to engage the private sector. Investment policymaking needs to cater for digital development and vice versa. This conference, organized in cooperation with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), will gather policymakers, investors, and other stakeholders of the digital economy to brainstorm and exchange experience on the promotion of investment in digital development.

Issues for the debate:

  • What kind of investment is needed for digital development?
  • What are the challenges to mobilizing and channelling investments towards digital development?
  • How can policymakers better link investment policy with digital development strategy?
