Representatives of government, the private sector, the technical community and civil society will participate on November 16-18, 2022 in the Eighth Ministerial Conference on the Information Society in Latin America and the Caribbean, which will take place in Montevideo, Uruguay, organized by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) in conjunction with the Government of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay.

The Conference aims to define a set of policy priorities at the regional level to drive digital transformation with a vision of sustainable development, in the framework of the Digital Agenda for Latin America and the Caribbean (eLAC 2024).

Digital technologies are essential tools for boosting productivity and growth, and have significant effects in various areas critical to development such as health, education and government.

That is why the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consider access to these technologies and the Internet to be one of their main goals.
