The “Spain 2019 Digital Society Report” presents a panorama which reflects the current roll-out of telecommunications infrastructures, the level of implementation of the most advanced technologies, the current state of digital life for Spanish people, and developments in this regard in Spain’s Autonomous Communities.
Spain is currently immersed in the fourth revolution which centres on digitalisation and data. This digital transformation, while presenting challenges and uncertainty, also has a very positive side which, in turn, offers real opportunities. As a case in point, the current Covid-19 crisis has forced us to rethink virtually overnight the way in which we live, study, work and enjoy our leisure time. In this regard, Spain’s high level of digitalisation has meant that the adaptation has been swift, ensuring the continuity of many essential activities.
In order to ensure this digital transformation and the digitalisation of industry, the ‘Spain 2019 Digital Society Report’ highlights the need to speed up digitalisation, above all for SMEs and the self-employed, with Spanish people given more digital training. These two factors are the keys to reviving the economy after Covid-19 and creating employment.
