Digital Economy

INTRODUCTION

Singapore’s growth strategy for the Digital Economy hasbeen enhanced by outlining three key thrusts: invest in building frontier capabilities, support promising enterprises and develop a pipeline of frontier tech talents. In addition, GovTech has been formed by the government to oversee the digital strategy of Singapore as a country. No other nation has this type of supervisory body which shows the importance of the Digital Economy in Singapore. This was again underlined by Singapore’s decision to earmark the Digital Economy as a key focus area during its ASEAN chairmanship in 2018.


OBJECTIVES

The Digital Economy committee is centred around the topic of the digital transformation. The objectives are to share experiences and learnings about transformative technologies, business models and leadership styles across sectors. It is also to provide a cross-sectoral platform for engagement in the field of the digital transformation with government agencies in Singapore. Overall, the committee aspires to be a forward-thinking forum that is at the forefront of these important changes and act as an advocate for those initiatives that will most benefit the business community.
