Welcome to CIPE’s introductory course on “How to Create an Enabling Environment for the Digital Economy.” This interactive online course provides a high-level overview of CIPE’s Digital Economy Enabling Environment Guide: Key Areas of Dialogue for Business and Policymakers, developed in partnership with New Markets Lab. The course will focus on four key policy areas referenced in the guide:
- Consumer Protection;
- Data Protection and Privacy;
- Cybersecurity; and
- Electronic Transactions (including e-payments and e-signatures)
By the end of the course, participants will be able to explain why business membership organizations, such as associations and chambers of commerce, as well as business owners, should examine and care about issues related to the digital economy.
