BRICS Digital Economy Report 2022
Dynamic business development and an improving policy environment mean the BRICS countries (Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, China and South Africa) can become important players in the digital economy. Yet challenges remain to bridge the digital divide, upgrade skills and digital governance, and improve access to technology and finance.
This report examines digital market trends and policy developments in the BRICS countries. It urges them to enhance cooperation through joint efforts to narrow the digital divide, advance digital governance discussions, improve measurement of the digital economy, catalyse cooperation among private-sector players and support development and uptake of new digital technologies.
The report was prepared by the International Trade Centre in collaboration with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, in the context of the BRICS meetings hosted by China in 2022.
