Infrastructure is key to the efficient transportation of resources, connecting people, and expanding global relationships. Almost 300 million out of 520 million people in rural areas lack access to good roads. Expanding our industries and infrastructure helps better the transport of goods, connect people, and expand world trade.
To drive innovation in sustainable development, timely and reliable data is needed. With up-to-date data, we can accurately locate what populations need. Data can also help determine how much output is needed from manufacturing and agricultural industries. Sustainable investment in industry and infrastructure requires data-led decision-making.
Innovation is the conviction that things could be better.
