The Digital Era brings with it great opportunities for economic growth and social development. However, it also implies a series of great challenges, some in practical terms, such as economic and social sustainability, and others of a more profound nature, such as Ethics. In this session, three experts from different fields will give their views around this paradigm.

Technological development plays a fundamental role both, in fostering digital economy in countries, and in the industrial transformation of their economic fabric. Counting with new economic resources, Spain is currently living a political momentum at a national and European level that can help accelerate this process. This session will analyze what are the opportunities and strengths that our economic sectors -specially finance and telecommunications- have in this new path.
