Brazilian Digital Strategy


Description

The Brazilian Digital Transformation Strategy (E-Digital) is an initiative by the federal government, coordinated by the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications (MCTIC). An Inter-Ministerial Working Group composed by nine government bodies developed this public policy after seven months of meetings, evaluations and experts and public consultations. Additionally, representatives of over thirty entities of the federal government interacted with that core group throughout the process. The resulting document also reflects the broad engagement of the private sector, the scientific and academic community and civil society through many stages of the elaboration process
