About us

  • During the 11th Pacific Alliance Summit, held on July 1, 2016 in Puerto Varas, Chile, by presidential mandate, the Digital Agenda Sub-group was created in order to build a roadmap that would allow the four countries to implement, develop and deepen specific issues in accordance with what is established in the telecommunications and electronic commerce chapters of the Commercial Protocol of the Pacific Alliance.

  • This roadmap was jointly built with the private sector and presented during the 12th Pacific Alliance Summit, held in June 2017. Subsequently, the Digital Agenda Subgroup was constituted as a Working Group to implement the actions agreed in the roadmap of the Digital Agenda.

  • The Digital Agenda Group (GAD, by its acronym in Spanish) aims to promote scenarios of coordination and convergence among the four countries in order to improve the conditions and development of business in the digital economy. It will also be responsible for implementing the actions established in the roadmap in order to promote the construction of a regional digital market.

  • The Group currently works on the development of specific activities in four pillars or work axes: Digital Economy, Digital Connectivity, Digital Government and Digital Ecosystem.
