    1. This article is important for Diplo for the following reasons:

      • growing relevance of digital economy for governance and policy will requie us to improve our coverage of digital economy and finance.
      • an interplay governments-companies will be crucial for understanding future digital developments.
      • need to improve our understanding and research in the field of digital finance.

      What can we do? This 'lifting' will be part of my (JovanK) 'sandbox' approach where I will try to map our existing human and tech resources and in a short time bring our coverage of these issues on the higher level.

      How ti will be done

      • gain full understanding of economic indicators that we will follow, including how often we have to follow them (just-in-time, monthly, quaterly, annually). JovanNj, who is economist by training will organise presentation for us.
      • after we identify economic parametars to follow we will re-organise our existing resources and identify new resources where we can find them (especially resources that we have to follow just-in-time)
      • start integration into our research (I am drafting article on an interplay between economic parameters and governance), web-services (DW, comparison softare), courses, etc.

Also, this is private entity which may be included in the wider discussion but not lead it in any case.
