Digital Latam

Welcome to the second edition of Digital Latam, our executive insight into what is moving technology markets in Latin America.

A region that has always found it difficult to coordinate policy and regulations across the continent, is launching this week a new Latin American digital agenda – eLAC 2022 – under the auspices of the Economic Commission for Latin America of the United Nations. We are very looking forward to the implementation of this regional plan as it presents an opportunity for the industry to partner with the ICT authorities and work together to close the digital gap in Latin America and The Caribbean.

In this edition, we analyse whether social media is under surveillance in Argentina, the implications of Chile’s new National Constitution for the Internet, and best practices on infrastructure deployment in Colombia. Among other issues, we also take a deeper look at the reasons for Mexico to take on big tech with a competition enquiry, as well as studying a bill in Brazil that will aim to support start-ups.

In this issue we look at:

  • Is social media under surveillance in Argentina?
  • Mexico uses competition policy to take on Big Tech
  • Colombia fosters telecom infrastructure
  • ICT in the new Chilean constitution
  • Brazil looks to innovation
  • Bite & bites
