Abstract The Final Draft of the Agenda for Connectivity in the Americas and Plan of Action of Quito. The document provides a conceptual framework, outlines a set of general guidelines as a Plan of Action to design and implement a connectivity strategy, and includes an annex section offering detailed suggestions to Administrations in several critical areas. The document calls for all countries of the Americas to formulate a vision statement of their own Agendas. However, in defining such a national vision, each country is encouraged to establish realistic objectives, goals and deadlines. The Plan of Action provides a general framework and outlines a three step process for countries willing to design and implement a connectivity strategy appropriate to their circumstances. The three basic steps are: assessment and planning, implementation (including infrastructure, utilization, content, legal and regulatory framework and financing), and evaluation.
