Chilean President Sebastian Pinera has introduced a program dubbed Agenda Digital Imagina Chile 2013-2020. The project seeks to double internet penetration across the Chile’s population by 2020, Estrategia Online reports.

The document consists of 14 lines of action, with 30 different initiatives that seek to facilitate access to telecoms networks and services to all Chilean citizens. Activities linked to ICT services are expected to account for 10 percent of the country's GDP by 2020.

The project aims to increase digital inclusion for Chilean citizens from the current 41 percent to 80 percent by 2020. To support this goal, the government will power the deployment of additional Wi-Fi hotspots in public places.
