The ASEAN Business Advisory Council on Wednesday hosted the ASEAN Roundtable on Skills for a Digital Age 2021.

Around 800 participants from across Southeast Asia and beyond attended the virtual discussions that featured senior figures and experts from both the public and private sector.

CEO of Dynamik Technologies and Chair of the ASEAN Business and Investment Roundtable on Skills for a Digital Age Haslina binti Haji Mohd Taib said, “New technological advancements such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, cybersecurity, and Blockchain all present great potential for change and are some of the catalysts needed in this 4th Industrial Revolution but we must ensure inclusivity. As technological advancements continuously change, staying relevant in this digital age means we must include life-long digital learning.”

Brunei LNG Managing Director and CEO Hajah Farida binti Dato Seri Paduka Haji Talib, a lead partner to the ASEAN Business series, noted that “as the longest running LNG Plant in the world, innovation and digitalisation is, and has always been, a core part of our operations.

“It is not something we have only just started. It is something we have been consistently working and improving on throughout the years”.

The roundtable was part of a series of events organised under Brunei’s Chairmanship of ASEAN.

The next event, ASEAN Business and Investment Summit will be held on October 25.
