Internet & Jurisdiction and ECLAC Regional Status Report 2020
MetadataShow full item record
The Internet & Jurisdiction and ECLAC Regional Status Report 2020 is Latin America and the Caribbean’s first comprehensive exercise in mapping the different policy trends relating to the cross-border nature of the Internet and the way this affects different stakeholders such as governments, companies and civil society. How might differing regional and national regulations create barriers to cross-border e-commerce and investment in digital markets? What economic and social benefits could be realized by harmonizing frameworks throughout the region? A better understanding of this situation is vital to efforts to foster investor confidence, promote innovation and economic diversification, create greater trust in e-commerce and boost a market of more than 600 million people, while opening up opportunities for businesses, most particularly small and medium-sized enterprises. Conversely, uncoordinated action by a wide range of actors and initiatives risks hampering the digitalization of economies, governments and societies. It is to help policymakers navigate the challenges ahead and to mutualize knowledge that the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network, in coordination with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), is presenting the Internet & Jurisdiction and ECLAC Regional Status Report 2020.
