UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said international cooperation on digital technology is essential to help defeat COVID-19 and achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
"Information technology can be a beacon of hope, allowing billions of people around the world to connect," he said in a message on Sunday marking the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.
During the COVID-19 pandemic these connections – with loved ones, with schools and colleges, with workplaces, with healthcare professionals and essential supplies– are more important than ever, the UN chief said.
