Go Back

As the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted everyday activities in Latin America, it accelerated a shift toward digitization across diverse sectors. The impressive adoption of digital technologies in commerce, education and health care may well have permanently changed public behavior, from online purchasing to telemedicine, in a region that had long lagged behind in its adoption of digital technologies. Amid the pandemic’s economic ruin, this transformation offers promising opportunities for post-pandemic recovery.

The question now is how Latin American governments build upon the changes that have taken place and create incentives for further digitization, encourage private investment, protect online privacy and improve cybersecurity in ways that speed the region’s economic recovery and diversification.

To explore strategies that Latin American governments could adopt to deepen the process of digital transformation, please join us for a seminar series hosted by the Wilson Center’s Latin American Program. Speakers in this three-part series, co-sponsored by the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), will include senior public officials from across the region and executives from leading global and Latin American technology companies. The seminars will address digital trade, technology workforce challenges and opportunities and privacy and cybersecurity.
