Panel 1A: Catalysing ASEAN Connectivity
Thursday, 21 October, 4pm SGT/ 9am BST
As the world starts to emerge from COVID-19, encouraging inter-connectivity is now more urgent than ever. The pandemic laid bare that solutions need to be sought multilaterally. From digital transformation to trade or sustainability goals, what is needed is a commitment to connectivity, especially within the diverse lands of ASEAN.
What policies changes are needed to ensure that connectivity within the region and beyond is harnessed and strengthened?
Panel 1B: The Digital Pivot
Thursday, 21 October, 5pm SGT/ 10am BST
COVID-19 has catalysed an acceleration of digital evolution. Innovation cycles are faster and digital agility is critical. As companies move from survival to growth mode – this pivot needs to be digitally entrenched. With the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership reimagining world trade ties and spurring digital transformation, innovation is the new normal.
But where are the opportunities for growth? And how do businesses innovate intelligibly?
Panel 2: Is There an ASEAN Way to Sustainability?
Friday, 22 October, 4pm SGT/9am BST
In the face of increasingly destructive climate catastrophes, the human and economic case for sustainability is unquestionable. And nowhere more so than in ASEAN. With many ASEAN countries being among the most vulnerable to climate change, the region’s companies need to take immediate and drastic action. Yet many are facing serious net-zero transition delays.
What does it take to build a sustainable and resilient future for ASEAN?
