10:00 – 10:50: Live Panel: Digital Divides and Internet Economy

Internet Economy:

  • Will countries with advanced Internet technology, infrastructure, and innovation accelerate their lead or will developing regions close the gap? Will differences in connection technology, quality, and level of Internet openness lead to fundamentally different Internet experiences and levels of opportunity for users?
  • For example, does Mauritius see itself as a leading country in terms of Infrastructure and Internet Technology and what is being doing to catch up with other countries or keep setting the pace? Are all areas of Mauritius equally connected and what is the impact to the Internet Economy for the places that are better connected than others within Mauritius?
