The Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) brings together nations, business, civil society, academics, and R&D institutions to promote social prosperity through more inclusive participation and growth across the digital economy.A global digital organization
The Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) was established in 2020 by seven member states to drive greater collaboration and cooperation across entrepreneurship, innovation, business growth and employment in a shared digital economy.
Its seven founding member nations are Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Nigeria Oman, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
By promoting common interests and collaborative digital transformation, the DCO's mission is to enable members to empower women, youth and entrepreneurs to accelerate growth across the digital economy, and achieve greater prosperity by promoting common interests and collaborative digital transformation.
At the same time, the rapid global proliferation of these technologies can also give rise to a newset of challenges, such as the digital divide, privacy, and trust. As digital transformation advances, these cross-border issues will become even more important for all countries.
Given the borderless nature of the technologies and data at the heart of the digital economy, we can only realize its full transformative potential and manage the challenges of its rise through global collaboration. The Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) will enable its members to align their national digital efforts as well as pool their collective capabilities and economic scale through mutually beneficial collaboration to create a new, multilateral space for digital growth and transformation.
