What is Real-Time Economy Network (RTEN)?

Real-time economy projects worldwide have strengthened international cooperation in the digital economy, aiming to streamline interactions between individuals, businesses, and government agencies. At RTEN, we facilitate Real-Time Economy best practices, ecosystem partnerships, and capacity building through our neutral engagement platform, digital skills training, and expert advisory services

The Need for a Real-Time Economy

A Real-Time Economy (RTE) represents a digital economy model where business processes and value chains are hyper-connected and digitised, using public digital infrastructure to operate in real-time for the greater good. RTE enables instant gratification of economic needs through cutting-edge technology solutions. Since the advent of innovative technologies, the global economy has undergone significant transformations, by harnessing the power of real-time interactions. In the post-COVID-19 era, there is a growing demand for digitalising economic activities that leverage hyper-connected digital economies operating in real-time.


The implementation and best practices of Real-Time Economy (RTE) have gained significant traction due to their critical role in accelerating the digital transformation of economic activities, promoting social inclusion, and advancing the United Nations' agenda for sustainable socio-economic development.
