World Economic Forum Pushing For Digital ID Systems Around The World

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is pushing for “digital ecosystems” around the world, starting with Digital ID. The organization stated it would be the first step to building “digital trust.”

“Building digital trust into our global digital economy can unleash trillions of dollars of opportunities,” stated the WEF. “But if we don’t know for certain who we are interacting with online, we cannot have trust. Digital identity must therefore be the foundational element to our digital economy, and here is why.”

In its blog, the WEF stated the “next step in making services more convenient to access is a federal Digital Identity Program, integrated with pre-existing provincial platforms.”
