U.S Commercial Service presents: A Discussion on ASEAN-wide Tech Demand
Start Date: 4/19/2018Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/19/2018End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:
The World's Fasted Growing Digital Economy

The ASEAN region is home to over 600 million people across ten countries. Already highly urbanized, 90 million more people are expected to move into the region's cities by 2030. Social media penetration has reached 55%, and mobile connectivity is at 141%. Ericsson predicts that by 2020 smartphone subscriptions will soar to nearly 800 million with 25% being 4G, putting ASEAN on track to become the fastest-growing global digital economy.  The fundamentals are already in place: robust and growing economies, a young literate population, and a well-developed ICT infrastructure. 

In addition to being the region's trading crossroads, Singapore is universally regarded as the #1 Tech hub in the Indo-Pacific, a key reason that 4,200 U.S. companies have made Singapore their regional headquarters. Singapore owes its wildly successful economic development in one generation to its strong embrace of technology through it's Smart Nation efforts. It has built a world class, globally competitive Tech industry and continues to explore new frontiers in innovation such as Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Interactive Media, Data Analytics and other technologies that span healthcare, security, energy, aviation, defense, smart cities and education. To promote this Tech-focused vision, Singapore actively markets itself as a sandbox for new product testing and development, often with financing.

Join this webinar to hear from industry experts about business development opportunities in ASEAN’s digital economy, and business tips from U.S. Embassy in Singapore and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
