Governments around the world have been working intensively to achieve economic growth, providing financial and social benefits for their citizens. Several governments are still in the process of economic recovery, facing significant challenges such as unemployment and economic inequality. At the same time, countries around the world recognise that digitalisation has the potential to support their reformative initiatives. It could also bring significant benefits to the economy, potentially increasing the country's productivity and competitiveness.
Specifically, World Economic Forum and Accenture studies show that the digital transformation of countries and industries is estimated to bring $100 trillion net profit by 2025. But the benefits of digital technologies aren’t limited to the improvement of productivity. According to the World Economic Forum, digital technology is a highly important factor for social development and transformation, improving access to basic services, enhancing connectivity and creating job opportunities.
