The Digital Landscape

“The digital economy is multifaceted, global, fast paced, and follows diverging and at times predisposed trends. Technologies are accelerating innovations and are changing industries faster than economies can adjust. New national and international markets are spawning and competition is fierce, leading to new urban trends and employment prospects, while also posing new social and economic pressures. Climate change and health matters are now demanding our full attention. The hyper-connected and data driven world is also creating new economic prospects while putting pressure on cyber resiliency and privacy that are making governing harder than ever. While the stakes are high, the opportunities are even greater for those who are able to leverage the full potential of this fast-evolving landscape.”
