Digital transformation should be embraced by all

Since COVID-19 first appeared, the world has seen a shift towards contactless interactions.

As a result, authorities have been urging for the populace to embrace digital transformation as the new normal.

However, I believe that the national aspiration of a digital future can only be truly realised if all parties do their part.

I was recently applying for a loan when I was told to produce a clearance letter before proceeding. It wasn’t my first time asking for a loan. So, if the system had been updated, they would have been able to access my entire history of loan applications, thus negating the need for a new clearance letter.

I hope that the authorities could look into speeding up their digitalisation plans, to allow us to work together to rid the country of the coronavirus once and for all.
