IFC: Building the Digital Infrastructure in Emerging Markets

Telecommunications, media, and technology are the building blocks of the modern world. This digital infrastructure underpins every aspect of society and economy, from smart cities and e-government to healthcare and education; from e-commerce, financial services, and manufacturing to research and development and more. Strengthening the digital capacity and reach of developing countries—as well as affordable connectivity—will enable significant progress towards achieving inclusive growth, economic stability, and improved quality of life for all citizens, including the most vulnerable.
