Event Intro

Singapore x Asia Innovation Partnership Forum 2020:Opportunities and Challenges of Southeast Asia's New Economy

Southeast Asia, as a high-growth region, has caught the interest of many investors and digital leaders. Significant examples of active participation in Southeast Asia's digital economy include China’s Alibaba and Tencent, perhaps driven by similarities that were present in China’s own development. By being the first port of call for many companies seeking opportunities overseas, Singapore gives many a front row seat to the exciting developments in this region. To this end, Singapore's Economic Development Board is co-organizing Asia in the Spotlight: Opportunities & Challenges in Southeast Asia with KrASIA.

We hope to facilitate open and robust discussions around the technology and innovation ecosystems in Southeast Asia, and thereby showcasing opportunities for companies to grow and scale globally.

This event will be held in both English and Chinese language.

We will see you there!
