G20 Ministers Discuss Challenges of Digital Transformation

BUENOS AIRES – High-level officials from the G-20 nations met Friday in the northwestern Argentine city of Salta to discuss ways to face the challenges of digital transformation.

The conference is headed by the Argentine minister of modernization, Andres Ibarra, and the minister of technology and productive innovation, Lino Barañao.

Ibarra said during his opening speech that the G20’s responsibility is to guarantee that the digital economy “benefits everyone.”

“The digital economy is crucial to spread the benefits of development to everyone, and to generate a better distribution of wealth,” Barañao also said.

The officials attending the conference are expected to discuss issues such as digital government, digital inclusion, measures of the digital economy, and the development of technological infrastructure.

Other issues that will be discussed are consumer protection measures and the use of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things in manufacturing, agriculture, as well as other activities.

Some of the officials attending the conference include the minister of industry and information technology of China, Miao Wei; the minister of digital development, communications and mass media of Russia, Konstanin Noskov; Houlin Zhao, secretary general of the International Telecommunications Union; and Mukhisa Kituyi, secretary general of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.

The meeting will end with a joint declaration that will serve as a guiding document for the G20 summit of heads of state and government, which will take place in Buenos Aires in November.
