OTTAWA – Prime Minister Stephen Harper will meet his counterpart from Trinidad and Tobago when she visits Canada this month. Harper's office says he'll meet Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar on April 25.
Speaking at the opening of the Fourth Ministerial Conference on the Information Society in Latin America and the Caribbean, Alicia Bárcena, the executive secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) said: “The region must advance towards a digital economy in the interests of structural change and equality.”
The components of the digital economy are the telecommunications infrastructure—particularly broadband networks, information and communications technologies (ICTs) (software, apps, hardware and ICT services) and the level of digital numeracy of users. According to preliminary measurements carried out by ECLAC using 2008 data, the digital economy represents an average of 3.2 per cent of the economy of four of the region’s countries—Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.
This is a significant figure if we compare the European Union average of five per cent. According to Uruguay President José Mujica, who officially opened the meeting: “The new digital civilisation has to ensure that everyone can choose their niche, their diversity. I defend politics in the highest sense because unbridled technology is not concerned with equality. Participants at this meeting have a historic responsibility to fight for a better world.”
