Industry 4.0 & Digitalisation in Southeast Asia

Welcome to the TVET knowledge hub for Industry 4.0 & Digitalisation in Southeast Asia.


Digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution are rapidly changing the skills demanded by the industry and how these skills are delivered in TVET education.


While the specific requirements for sectors and skills demand are still unclear, there is a consensus that skills requirements will be changing a lot faster. As a result, TVET systems must become more flexible, quicker to adapt, and put a greater focus on lifelong learning.

ADB: The Future of Work in Developing Asia

Recent technological innovation in fields such as robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence have reduced the number of workers required in a range of sectors, while lowering costs and increasing reliability. This trend has led policy makers, academics, chief executive officers, and entrepreneurs to ask what types of jobs will be most affected, what new skillsets will be needed for the jobs of tomorrow, and how governments can ease the transition.

Report

The digital revolution that has become such a powerful force for global change is still in early days in the ASEAN member states. ASEAN's digital economy represents only 7% of its GDP, compared with 16% in China and 35% in the US. However, the region has much to gain by laying the foundation for the digital economy to power and accelerate intraregional trade and growth (what we term "digital integration"). Digital integration will be critical for ASEAN businesses to compete at home and overseas - it has the power to turn small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) into regional and global players. Di...

Building on the January 2017 report on automation, McKinsey Global Institute’s latest report, Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation (PDF–5MB), assesses the number and types of jobs that might be created under different scenarios through 2030 and compares that to the jobs that could be lost to automation.
