Enhancing Digital Capabilities in a Post-COVID World


The ongoing pandemic has demonstrated the critical importance of digital capabilities. These amount to digital infrastructure (high-speed broadband connectivity, cybersecurity), digital content, services, and skills for business continuity and online service delivery, as well as robust, coordinated leadership of the digital agenda by government, operators, regulators, and private sector. Digital capability is an essential pre-requisite to the transformation of nations and economies in the digital era. Investments in digital capabilities (leadership, institutions, infrastructure, content, services, skills, media, culture, safety) is a must. The panelists discuss their experience, from the public, private, state government, and WBG perspective.
