2020 Model G20

Shanghai Summit

Jan 27th – Feb 3rd, 2020

Building a Digital Future

Digital technologies are evolving faster and are used more widely than ever before. Digitization touches all sectors of the economy and society, such as commerce and finance, government and public services, agriculture and industry, and security and defence. The development of artificial intelligence allows digital technology to adapt and optimize its performance, creating significant shifts in the workforce and new markets for investment. At the same time, just under half the world’s population lacks internet access, cutting them off from opportunities for economic growth.

Learning Objectives

  • What are the barriers and benefits of achieving global internet connectivity?
  • What types of financial markets and employment opportunities does digitization create for your country?
  • How can the global community most effectively manage the risks posed by digitization?
  • How will your country educate its future and current workforce for a digital world?
