Digital technologies and data are transformational. People, firms and governments live, interact, work and produce differently than in the past, and these changes are accelerating rapidly. How can we realise the immense promises of digital technologies and data for growth and well-being in a fast evolving world? This report charts the road ahead. It identifies seven policy dimensions that allow governments – together with citizens, firms and stakeholders – to shape digital transformation to improve lives. It also highlights key opportunities, challenges and policies related to each dimension, offers new insights, evidence and analysis, and provides recommendations for better policies in the digital age.

Editorial: Making digital transformation work for growth and well-being

How do we – as citizens, governments and businesses – shape digital transformation so that it benefits society and leaves no one behind?

From the government perspective, a key to unleashing the promise of digital transformation is to develop an integrated and coherent policy response across all areas. It also requires policies that seize the opportunities and maximise the benefits while addressing the challenges and minimising the costs.
