Developing new economic and business models that are digitally driven, creating sustainable value for an inclusive economy.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is rapidly driving transformational disruption across every sector. By 2022, over 60% of global GDP will be digitized. An estimated 70% of new value created in the economy over the next decade will be based on digitally-enabled platforms. Currently, about 50% of the world’s population does not currently participate in the digital economy at all – and growth in internet adoption is slowing. The G20’s Global Infrastructure Hub estimates a global funding shortfall of nearly $1 trillion for information and communications technology infrastructure by 2040.
During an event, in Ravenna, Fr. Philip Larrey, Matteo Lepore, Andrea Pezz and Raffaele Barberio had something to say about "Digital Economy".
