One of the biggest transformations that has taken place during the Covid-19 pandemic is the adoption of technology across organisations, industries and economies. In a span of months, cloud computing - the underlining technology enabler of this digital transformation - has already shown to dramatically change lives through the increase of productivity across sectors, the unlocking of new business opportunities and the uplifting of rural communities.

How has cloud technology contributed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Southeast Asia, and where do further opportunities lie? What role can public and private sectors play? What are the most urgent challenges and how can we overcome them?

Eco-Business, together with our partners, AWS Institute and Intel, are pleased to invite you to the launch of our whitepaper study, “Southeast Asia’s cloud story: Impact, Inclusivity and Growth”.

This whitepaper, prepared by Eco-Business in collaboration with AWS Institute and Intel, seeks to understand the ways in which cloud technology has benefited society, as well as to identify the elements needed to ensure greater digital inclusivity and sustainable growth in the longer term.

A special dialogue will be hosted in conjunction with the whitepaper launch, and we are pleased to welcome you to join us for what will be a valuable conversation with stakeholders observing critical trends on the ground.

To enable stakeholders from the region and beyond to participate, join us on March 19, at 10am virtually.
