International Chamber of Commerce
Whether it’s in the underpinning infrastructure for economic and social progress or in providing solutions in sectors as varied as agriculture, energy, healthcare, manufacturing or education, the value of ICTs and digital technologies cannot be understated. These technologies, when properly managed, can be a formidable engine of innovation, competitiveness, and sustainable economic growth, as well as a powerful catalyst to reach the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
2023 marks the halfway point in the implementation of the SDGs, but the global community is falling short of delivering on many of these objectives. This session will draw on the experience and expertise of global business developing, deploying and using digital technologies and discuss lessons learned and ways forward to unlock the power of digitization for people, planet and prosperity. Participants will share their experience in leading projects, and delivering business solutions that help advance the SDGs and discuss what policy and regulatory elements must be in place to enable their success.
