Upcoming Online Conference: Accelerating Digital Transformation in Asia

2-3 February 2021 @ 2pm SGT/6am GMT

The IIC’s well respected annual Asia Telecom & Media Forum returns, albeit online. Regulators and policy makers from across the region will discuss the initiatives taken in response to the pandemic and how that will translate into objectives and priorities in 2021 and beyond. Addressing the connectivity and usage gaps laid bare by the pandemic will be the starting point for discussions between regulatory leaders and their industry peers. Access Partnership’s Christopher Martin will be participating in the panel “Accelerating digital transformation for all – digital enablement, capacity building, inclusion – steps being taken nationally and regionally to close the digital divide” at 15.30 SGT on 2 February 2021. Themes to be explored across the two days:

  • Intra-regional regulatory coordination – during and post-pandemic
  • Accelerating digital transformation for all – digital enablement, capacity building, inclusion – steps being taken nationally and regionally to close the digital divide
  • Communications infrastructure – maximising coverage, resilience and flexibility; implications for policy making and regulation
  • Content and online video – lock-down learnings, innovation & governance to support the creative economy
