Statement at development and international cooperation in the twenty-first century : the role of information technology in the context of a knowledge-based global economy by James D. Wolfensohn, President (Inglês)

This report discusses the remarks delivered by James D. Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank. He discusses on: (1) the importance of knowledge and information and communications technology (ICT) in a global knowledge economy; (2) the relationship between technical knowledge gaps, information problems, and the digital divide, the fact that they are worse in developing countries and among the poor and their impact on development; and (3) the ways that international institutions, like the World Bank and others, working in partnership with developing-country governments, the private sector, and non-government organizations (NGOs) can better address these issues.
