A vision of a post-pandemic ASEAN, enabled by digital technologies

10th February 2022

After more than two years of uncertainty during the pandemic, many businesses and consumers in ASEAN are looking forward to a more stable recovery in 2022 and beyond. Though it is too early to declare the pandemic over, health experts have said the situation could be new windowmore manageable in future.

What’s important for businesses now in ASEAN is the need to get up to speed as the region recovers from the pandemic and eventually resumes its rapid growth. In ASEAN, 60 million new digital consumers have been added since the pandemic began, according to a new window2021 report by Google, Temasek and Bain & Company. The region is on the path to become a S$1 trillion digital economy by 2030, propelled by fast growth in a digital decade starting from 2021, it adds. Thus, it is critical to understand how societies transformed by the pandemic will embrace new ways to interact digitally, consume healthcare services, buy things over online retail channels and manufacture goods in smart factories.

By creating a clear vision and accelerating innovations today, ASEAN businesses will be better positioned to reap opportunities in this ‘new normal’.

At NEC’s inaugural NEC Visionary Day ASEAN 2022 on 10 March 2022, NEC will share a vision of how ASEAN can forge ahead together to recover, rebuild and reimagine a digital future together with a number of the region’s business and government leaders. Consisting of a full-day online conference and a virtual exhibition, the specially curated virtual event will also feature various NEC teams’ expertise and experience in the region.

In the region, NEC has contributed to the development of the public and private sectors in the fields of communications and computing for over 60 years. Today, just as before, NEC believes that a common vision is important for all stakeholders to identify the type of society they want. We will share our vision of a sustainable society and future, complemented with our portfolio of cutting-edge technologies such as AI and IoT, and various practices and experiences in implementing these technologies in ASEAN at the event.

This event is open to all attendees with a valid registration. Please new windowregister now and join us on 10 March!
