The State of the Digital Economy in the Commonwealth

The Fourth Industrial Revolution presents significant opportunities and challenges for the Commonwealth. It has the potential to provide a significant source of new growth for all Commonwealth economies. However, because Commonwealth countries are at different stages in their economic, social and technological development, it will require innovative approaches to both policy and policy-making to narrow the digital divide, overcome the challenges and take advantage of this new age.

This first volume in the Commonwealth Connectivity Series explores some of the issues facing policy-makers in the Commonwealth. It provides policy recommendations that Commonwealth members can use to address the challenges and realise the benefits of the digital age.
