New Zealand appoints a Digital Economy and Digital Inclusion Advisory Group to guide policy-makers

The Minister of Broadcasting, Communications and Digital Media and Government Digital Services in New Zealand announced that eight members were selected to form a Digital Economy and Digital Inclusion Advisory Group to support the government in improving digital inclusion nationwide.

The group is intended to support the government to establish efficient digital inclusion policies through insights from urban and rural New Zealanders, non-government organizations, indigenous peoples, industry experts and other community groups.

Given that the elaboration of policies to promote digital inclusion requires the collaboration of many different stakeholders, this advisory group represents an example for other countries to follow in order to come up with solutions to address the digital divide.
