Reaping Digital Dividends
June 13, 2017Dushanbe, Tajikistan


Join us as we explore the challenges and opportunities of the new, digital age, during a presentation of our recent report, "Reaping Digital Dividends: Leveraging the Internet for Development in Europe and Central Asia."

Reaping Digital Dividends: Leveraging the Internet for Development in Europe and Central Asia examines the transformational impact of information technologies and the Internet on economic growth and development. It highlights the benefits of the Internet for the countries in Europe and Central Asia region (ECA), including Tajikistan and analyzes not only telecommunications-specific policies, but also those affecting Internet complements such as skills, labor markets and firms.

The analysis covers Internet networks and services, use and adoption of technologies by governments, firms and citizens, and an assessment of the policy framework to guide policymakers and business strategists in promoting the take-up of digital technologies and boosting their analog complements, thereby reaping dividends for the economic and social development of the ECA region.

The report will be presented by Mr. Hans Timmer, World Bank Chief Economist for Europe and Central Asia.
