Executive summary (OECD Review of Telecommunication Policy and Regulation in Colombia)

Telecommunication networks and services and, more generally, information and communication technologies (ICTs) play an increasingly important role in economies and societies. Colombia has rightly recognised the importance of ICT deployment and adoption for increased economic growth and productivity. ICTs, moreover, can also assist in bridging the gap between the rich and the poor and promote inclusive development. In Colombia, telecommunication and ICTs play a major role in the 2010-14 National Development Plan (Prosperidad para Todos), through the country's flagship national ICT Plan (Plan Vive Digital). This Plan represents an important milestone in Colombia's ICT policies: it is well resourced, has high political visibility and covers both the demand and the supply side of ICTs.
