Digital economy and Society – World Economic Forum

How can private-public collaboration realize digital technology’s potential to benefit humankind?

The exponential growth in digitization and internet connectivity is the backbone of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It has the potential to propel societies forward, enable innovative business models and help governments address legitimate policy concerns.

Digitization is transforming business models, the policy landscape and social norms. The aim of the World Economic Forum’s System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and Society is to cultivate a shared, trusted digital environment that is a driver of inclusion, economic development and social progress. The System Initiative aims to create networks that enable and encourage action to promote the long-term health and stability of digitally enabled economies and societies.
