OECD Reviews of Digital Transformation: Going Digital in Colombia analyses recent developments of the digital economy in the country, reviews policies related to digitalisation and makes recommendations to increase policy coherence in this area. The report examines recent developments in infrastructures for the digital economy, telecom markets and related regulations and policies in Colombia. It reviews trends in the use of digital technologies by individuals, businesses and the government, and examines policies to foster diffusion. The report also examines opportunities and challenges raised by digitalisation for production, innovation, jobs and skills.

The report reconsiders these policies in relation to their coherence among different domains and in order to foster synergies across government ministries, levels and institutions, based on the integrated policy framework of the OECD's Going Digital: Making the Transformation Work for Growth and Well-being project.


Seizing the opportunities from the digital transformation for jobs and innovation

The digital transformation has the potential to cut across all economic and societal activities, raising opportunities and challenges. Taking advantage of these changes requires a workforce that can adapt to technological changes and firms that are able to innovate. Colombia needs to continue its reforms of education and labour market institutions and take measures to boost innovation in firms in order to seize the opportunities from the digital transformation.
