National governments play an active role to promote economic growth and create good jobs through public policies, funding and enabling digitalization initiatives so that their constituents can improve their lives through economic generation. There is a constant need to ensure that the national economic sectors continue to be competitive, both domestically and internationally, and contribute positively to GDP growth (e.g., national productivity drives). Governments play a strategic and facilitator role to ensure that their country attracts investments and talents in order to nurture a deeper base of domestic enterprises that will grow to achieve large global footprints.
