Construction of the 2030 Digital Agenda

“A digital, inclusive, connected and participatory society in a institutionalized enabling environment "


After two decades of executing short-term strategies that did not achieve the expected results and under the effects of a pandemic that posed new challenges, the Dominican Republic set about formulating a national digital transformation strategy that was long-term and built with the active participation of society, including community organizations from the different regions of the country, using a collaborative platform donated by the IDB. During the process of construction and consensus of the 2030 Digital Agenda, more than 200 public and private organizations participated, as well as 1,015 people in person and virtually from different parts of the country.
