CeBIT America is proud to host the Bridging The Global Digital Divide Conference, presented by the Business Council for the United Nations.
This two day conference event will bring together international leaders from the public and private sector to develop concrete, practical business solutions that create business opportunity and advance the U.N.'s goal of ensuring that technology works for all. The Bridging the Global Digital Divide conference at CeBIT America 2003 will be the staging ground for developing proposals together with technology companies and political leaders in preparation for the United Nations World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Geneva.
Information technology is fundamental to making globalization work. Given the current downturn in the global economy and additional uncertainty in financial markets, business has a vital interest in ensuring that information technology supports thriving markets and brings a growing number of developing countries into the global marketplace.
The "Bridging the Global Digital Divide" conference presents vision, strategy, and innovative business solutions for expanding IT in today's global economy.
Participants will include leading international government IT decision-makers, senior executives from all sectors relevant to IT, investors and analysts, senior U.S. Government officials and international media and journalists.
The conference will be the staging ground for formulating concrete, results-based proposals seeking to foster greater cooperation between technology companies and political leaders. These proposals are aimed at growing markets and providing both countries and their citizens the tools necessary to plug into the global economy. This process will be coordinated by the Business Council for the United Nations (BCUN). A final group of proposals will be presented at the United Nations' World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Geneva, Switzerland in December 2003. BCUN (www.bcun.org) is a division of the United Nations Association of the USA, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
