Digital transformation usually starts with the conversion of information and processes but also involves integration and innovation of processes to trigger significant, comprehensive changes through combinations of information, computing, communication, and connectivity technologies. Successful digital transformation optimizes business processes through innovative business models, changes in interactions and behaviors, and new ways to connect communities. The COVID-19 pandemic also sped up the adoption of digital technologies, reflecting the need for more flexible, resilient, connected ways of working.
APO members have been proactively responding to this trend and devising national strategies to address the opportunities and challenges it brings, such as the ROC’s Digital Nation, Smart Island, India’s Digital India, Indonesia’s Digital Roadmap, Japan’s Society 5.0, the ROK’s Digital New Deal, Malaysia’s Digital Economy Blueprint, Singapore’s Smart Nation Initiative, Thailand’s Thailand 4.0, Turkiye’s National Technology Initiative and Digital Turkiye, and Vietnam’s National Digital Transformation Program. They may have different priorities, but all aim to achieve comprehensive socioeconomic growth by enhancing digital literacy, inclusiveness, social welfare, and capability building, in addition to conventional focuses on infrastructure, sectoral economic growth, and digitization of businesses.
This workshop will provide a platform to exchange ideas on digital transformation strategies, discuss the effectiveness of national initiatives, and observe good practices of implementing national digital transformation strategies.
