Digital Agenda Chile 2013-2020 Summary
Language: English
Organization: Pais Digital Foundation
Notes: provides a brief outline of each section in the Agenda Digital Imagina Chile report and the stated strategies, lines of action, initiatives, indicators, current data, and specific goals


The Digital Development Strategy published by the Chilean government is extremely detailed and available in English. However, this only covers the country’s strategy for 2008 to 2012. The government has created a new ICT development program to begin where the Digital Development Strategy ends, titled Digital Agenda Imagine Chile. This report is also extremely long and detailed, however, it is not available anywhere in English yet (as far as I can tell). I would have preferred to use the new Imagine Chile report to analyze the country’s current strategies for 2013-2020 but I do not have the skills to translate the entire document. I was able to find a PDF published by the Pais Digital Foundation which provides a brief summary in English of the Imagine Chile report. Hopefully, the government will soon publish an English version of the report.
