Transforming with equity
Uruguay now has the conditions to accelerate the country’s social and economic development, by addressing current challenges of the information and knowledge society and anticipating those that may arise in the future. The “Agenda Uruguay Digital 2020” is thus framed in a context that implies going beyond the deployment of infrastructure and technological tools to improve and support traditional processes. Its objectives seek to expand the capacity for innovation that triggers transformation of processes, without disregarding solutions to pending needs in the access and use of digital technologies. The Agenda seeks to prioritise, articulate and disseminate a series of actions aimed at establishing a comprehensive vision in line with the country’s strategic development goals, while also contributing to achieving the global goals in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Agenda focuses on the critical factors that condition digital transformation, such as strengthening specific skills, the full incorporation of technology into productive sectors, deepening the ties between State and citizens, and counting on an enabling framework to develop the agenda.
The Agenda Uruguay Digital 2020 integrates the different priority initiatives in order to advance in the country’s digital transformation in an inclusive and sustainable manner, through the smart use of technologies. This is motivated by the fact that more and more Uruguayans could take full advantage of the benefits of the information and knowledge society under equal opportunities.
