The speaker will touch on some specific examples on how different organisations and technology experts e.g. researchers, innovators, investors, academics and corporations can participate in this exciting future for people of ASEAN, given that regional countries like Japan, Korea, India, China and Australia have a window of opportunity in supporting ASEAN for digital technologies in multidisciplinary sectors.
