    In July 2001, G8 Leaders endorsed the Genoa Plan of Action, a product of the work of the Digital Opportunities Task Force. The DOT Force, which was formed following the 2000 G8 Summit in Okinawa, represented both a unique model of international cooperation and a new way of responding to the challenges of development. It brought together committed leaders from government, industry and civil society, drawn from G8 member countries and from the developing world, to conceive a forward looking action plan designed to expand the use of digital technology and to universalize its benefits.
