The OECD Ministerial Meeting on the Digital Economy took place at the end of June and led to the publication of the Cancún Declaration. In this document 41+ countries committed to a range of goals around internet access and openness, including a section on the need to invest and boost digital skills training and education.  All Aboard’s Iain MacLaren was an invited speaker at the event and reports that the ‘Metro Map’ received an enthusiastic response from participants and with a number wishing to keep in touch with developments and make links to the project.
