The OECD held a "high-level" meeting in June 2011 that was intended to build upon the OECD Ministerial on The Future of the Internet Economy held in Seoul, Korea in June 2008. I was invited to attend this meeting as part of the delegation from the Internet Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC), and here I'd like to share my impressions of this meeting.
This 2 day meeting, "The Internet Economy: Generating Innovation and Growth", had the objective of exploring a number of current issues in the public policy space, including:
- how best to develop high speed broadband access,
- how to leverage broadband for economic growth,
- metrics of broadband development and its impact, and
- how best to maintain openness and promote continued growth.
The presentations I heard at this meeting could be broadly classified into a number of themes, as outlined below.
