About This Event

With 125,000 new users coming onto the Internet every day, the ASEAN digital economy is projected to grow exponentially, adding an estimated AUD1.52 trillion (USD1.1 trillion) to the regional Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over the next ten years. 

Greater use of digital technologies is creating new trade opportunities in digital goods and services and expanding existing trade in physical goods and services that can be exchanged seamlessly through digital channels. In both instances, they are contributing to the creation of jobs, increased productivity and wages, and a higher standard of living. Trade across the region is therefore expanding in volume and scope.

However, there is significant opportunity for harnessing national digitalisation efforts to further increase, accelerate and amplify overall trade in the region. This 90-minute session will bring together experts from government, industry, and academia to examine the digital trade landscape in ASEAN. It will explore drivers and enablers of digital trade in the region and assess the dynamics that determine the impact of digital trade on specific sectors and on the wider economy.

This event is jointly organised and supported by Access Partnership and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) as part of the Australian Government funded ASEAN-Australia Digital Trade Standards Initiative.
