Information & Communication Technologies Virtual Business Mission

Information & Communication Technologies Virtual Business Mission

The Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector in South East Asia has tremendous potential. E-commerce is a key driver of the digital economy in this region where policy-makers are focusing on creating a cashless society. ASEAN inked the first e-commerce agreement which aims to spur the use of e-commerce to drive the region’s economic growth, to achieve the projected growth of ASEAN’s internet economy to US$200 billion by 2025.

The 17th business mission under the EU Business Avenues in South East Asia programme, Information & Communication Technologies mission, will take selected European companies to participate on a virtual business mission in ConnecTechAsia 2020.

Dates: 28 September – 1 October 2020
