About This Event

By 2040, Asia-Pacific will account for 50% of global GDP and 40% of global consumption. To achieve this growth, the structure of trade is undergoing substantial transformation, with digital trade and rapid digitalisation fuelling new business models, supply chains, and consumer participation.

This Digital Trade Standards Workshop will set out what digital trade and growth entails and how to facilitate it. The session will discuss the role of international standards and how they enable interconnectivity and interoperability by setting out specifications and procedures to ensure consistent implementation of processes, technologies and methods—particularly in facilitating digital transactions, ensuring seamless cross-border trade, and ensuring this is underpinned by trust.

This 90-minute session brings together experts representing government, industry and academia to discuss the best practices and regulatory frameworks, and how ASEAN can facilitate alignment and digital integration. 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.
