The Pathways Commission provides evidence to help developing country governments navigate their digital pathways - enabling them to take control and chart their own pathways for prosperity.

The initiative will bring policy recommendations useful for the discussions of IT law drafts to be held at the autumn session of the Parliament. For instance, the recommendations will be about assessing preparedness for digital age, organizing national discussions to lay a solid foundation for digital development, and supporting the country’s development plan for encouraging inclusive growth of digital development and technological innovation.
