Government priorities and policy developments (OECD Internet Economy Outlook 2012)

This is followed by a discussion of specific ICT policy areas including security of information systems and networks, enhancing current infrastructure through the deployment of broadband and IPv6, e-government, e-health, ICT skilling and digital content. The final section examines ways to foster innovation with a focus on green ICT programmes.
