Accelerating Digital Transformation Policy in Japan, United Kingdom, Singapore, and Asia-Pacific

Overview

On 21 July 2022, Access Partnership held a webinar on accelerating digital transformation policy in Japan, UK, Singapore, and Asia Pacific. 

Digital transformation (DX) has become an international buzzword that is widely used across the world. However, despite DX almost universally being a high strategic policy priority, different jurisdictions have been met with widely varying degrees of success in its execution. One key factor affecting this are the approaches to public-private collaboration in this space.  

The webinar featured discussions among participants on the role of governments and other topics related to digitalisation. The discussions were moderated by Dr.Takenaka, the former Minister of Internal Affairs and Communication in Japan, and a senior advisor of Access Partnership. 

During the webinar,  global tech enterprises were provided with the latest status of the digitalisation policy in Japan, United Kingdom, Singapore, and Asia-Pacific where their digitalisation has had significant progress.   

Speakers

  • Dr. Takenaka Heizo, Former Minister of Internal Affairs and Communication (MIC) / Japan (moderator)
  • Mr. Koichi Akaishi, Vice-Minister for Digital Policy, Digital Agency, Government of Japan
  • Mr. Ben Vandersteen, Technical Architect for UK Government Digital Service (GDS)
  • Ms. Aileen Chia, Deputy Chief Executive, Connectivity Development & Regulation, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), Singapore
  • Ms. Lim May-Ann, Emeritus Director, Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA)/Director, Access Partnership Fair Tech Institute
