Abstract

Countries in Latin America, nongovernmental organisms, private corporations, and international organisms are working on a preliminary phase to develop information communication technology (ICT) as well as national strategies to convert current weaknesses into opportunities for an information society (IS). There are numerous initiatives which have promoted the introduction of IS and demonstrated significant progress and development in several countries. Latin American governments have begun elaborating a regional action plan, based upon the action plan resulting from the first World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), in Geneva during 2003. They have also participated on the second phase of the WSIS. Currently, these governments are defining an integrated strategy for Latin America, taking inventory of the different activities carried out and monitoring progress. Latin American governments are working to form a unified agreement which allows for social progress and sustained development in the Latin American and Caribbean regions.
