Abstract

In today’s world all countries, both developed and developing, digitalization processes are rising rapidly. They concern both state organizations and private companies and the public. Digitalization has an impact on the welfare of the population, the economic development of the country and its global competitiveness. Almost all countries in the LAC region have created their own programs, plans and strategies for the development of the digital economy. The article provides a will comparative characteristic of the state’s approaches and digitalization achievements in LAC. It is shown that the virtual space is developing dynamically; the number of users is steadily growing, on the other hand, the infrastructure of the LAC Internet remains poorly developed. In almost all countries, public services are being transferred to the Internet, which provide many advantages in the future. Behavioral research has shown a positive relationship between the development of state support and the development of the digital economy. Leading countries invest 20% of their GDP in training and innovation, which makes them leaders. LAC has good prospects in terms of Internet development and digitalization of the economy, but it must use them correctly and in time.
