Industry 4.0 & Digitalisation in Southeast Asia

Report

The digital revolution that has become such a powerful force for global change is still in early days in the ASEAN member states.

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...
