The accelerating pace of technological innovation is driving global competition and has resulted in tremendous breakthroughs over the past decade. As COVID-19 has increased the reliance on digital solutions, digitalization has become recognized as one of the key drivers of economic growth. However, in order to actualize ICT’s potential to address global challenges, there needs to be a global consensus on policies and a regulatory framework that enables growth and competitiveness and evolves along with the advent of technological advances. BCIU provides a platform for business and government to engage on ICT policies and form and strengthen partnerships.
Digital integration is growing across work, home, and life. Smartphones connect us to family on the other side of the world. Collaboration apps give us the power to work from nearly anywhere. But as digital technology steadily integrates into our lives with each passing day, cybersecurity threats are evolving as well.
Over the past twenty years, digital technologies have brought deep transformation to our industries and economies. They have contributed to U.S. economic growth and competitiveness. More recently, digital tools and technologies have enabled resilience amidst the disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing people to connect, communicate, work, shop and learn virtually. Digital transformation is likely to only accelerate, as policymakers look for ways to strengthen economic resilience and boost economic recovery in a post-pandemic world.
