The EU expands its Digital4Development (D4D) Hub to Latin America and the Caribbean, intensifying multi-stakeholder dialogue with views to the EU-LAC Digital Alliance. The regional D4D Hub is an ambitious multi-stakeholder coordination platform that aims to step up the dialogue and engagement with LAC on digital issues and promote a human-centric model of digital transformation.
