Information about the project
Agenda Uruguay Digital - Developing the national e-strategy
Uruguay Digital
“Uruguay Digital” brings together the efforts of the public and private sectors, academia and organised civil society, and is set as country commitment. This has been an ongoing and evolving process, reflected in the four generations of the digital agenda. The significant effect of these actions has contributed to closing digital gaps and democratising services, turning digital development into a hallmark of Uruguay nationally and internationally. The process developed for the 2020 Agenda, integrates the different priority initiatives to advance in the country’s digital transformation in an inclusive and sustainable manner, through the smart use of technologies.
National implementation: Uruguay
Completed from 01/06/2015 to 31/12/2016
