Several technological transformations (e.g. the Internet of Things, advanced manufacturing or technology-enabled platforms) put the global economy on a new track. They are likely to change business models, patterns of comparative advantage, skill needs, the organisation of work and may further limit the room of manoeuvre of national policy.
If G20 leaders take the right steps in the areas of data security, skill acquisition, infrastructure investment and tax cooperation, the digital economy can vastly improve prosperity and inclusiveness. This task force will make recommendation to that end.
