Description

In this new phase of post-financial-crisis economic recovery, the countries of the region are meeting considerable challenges and opportunities involving the information society, an economic and social system in which knowledge and information are vital sources of wellbeing and progress. It has been said that the countries of the region will be able to achieve greater and better growth only if they renew their strategies for development with equality and lay a sounder foundation for growth and greater social inclusion in a new technological era based on information and communications technology (ICT), whose transformational potential can be used to add value to economic activity, to public services and to social organization.
