The increased investment in Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) by governments have had mixed results in enabling economic growth, according to Dr. Nagy Hanna. Dr. Hanna spoke on Monday at the FreeBalance Minister’s Roundtable (FMRT) in Managua, Nicaragua. The FMRT, hosted by the Government of Nicaragua, invited ministers from FreeBalance customers.
Dr. Hanna, the author of “Mastering Digital Transformation” explained how new digital technologies can accelerate positive and negative elements for any country. Governments need to think holistically by combining public investments with policy changes. It’s a difficult process to maximize economic impact. Dr. Hanna suggested a wise use of prototyping but not so many siloed prototypes that it cannot scale.
