The USCIB Foundation, USCIB’s educational arm, is teaming up once again with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and BIAC, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, to host our third conference on March 8, 2017 at the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center in Washington, D.C.

The digital transformation of our economies has revealed exciting potential for a more prosperous, productive, inclusive, and socially beneficial world. The explosion of new technologies and data-driven applications already have led to important breakthroughs across all sectors and hold promise of further advancements in ways we may not yet be able to conceive.

This year’s conference will focus on moving forward the OECD’s post-Ministerial digital economy agenda as well as its horizontal project on digitalization. We will explore how these broad-ranging OECD frameworks can help to address possible new challenges posed by changing global policy dynamics. In particular, panelists will discuss the OECD’s evidentiary base and metrics on the broader, cross-sectoral economic impact of digital transformation and relevance for the G20/B20 agendas on the digital economy. Also important, the conference will examine policies enabling digital transformation as well as consider how stakeholders that are included in the relevant OECD committees can constructively contribute to the development of OECD guidance that supports such a facilitating environment.


  • The Digital Economy and Information Society of the Future
  • Realizing the Global Commercial Benefits and Corporate Societal Responsibilities of Digitalization
