The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for accelerated digitalization in Latin America and the Caribbean. Digital transformation holds tremendous promise for the region but unlocking its benefits will require a coordinated public-private effort.

What concrete policies can help countries overcome digital access challenges in a region where less than 50 percent of the population has fixed broadband connectivity? In what ways can public-private sector partnerships accelerate digitalization for an innovative and inclusive economic reactivation and long-term prosperity? With digital expansion in mind, how can the region leverage partnership tools to expand new opportunities from improved public services and transparency to education and health?

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Thursday, February 17, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. (ET), for a virtual conversation on the role of public-private partnerships and policy actions in increasing digital connectivity across Latin America and the Caribbean. The event is part of the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center’s #ProactiveLAC series, which offers insight and analysis at the highest level on #Prosperity and #Reactivation in LAC.
