Abstract: The development of a knowledge society brings obvious advantages to countries, but it also entails significant risks of disequilibrium and inequality in each society and at the international level.

International digital agendas and programs of cooperation for Latin American countries and Europe constitute a good opportunity for progress in this field.Retrasos y asimetrías en el desarrollo de las TIC
