Panel 4: Competition and collaboration for leading digital transformation and innovation

Digital technologies have transformed the world on the basis of disruptive innovations that affect the entire economy, reconfiguring value chains in sectors such as manufacturing, transport, health, entertainment, banking and finance, and in the public sector. This encourages innovations and interrelations among existing and new firms, giving rise to ecosystems of digital platforms for products and services and innovative business models. These ecosystems are quickly becoming the benchmark of the digital economy, driven by consumer demand for products and services with real-time, intuitive solutions integrated across industries. This transformation requires upgrading infrastructure, human capital and the business environment to promote investment, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Developing the digital ecosystem calls for a climate of healthy competition and collaboration among all stakeholders.
