SINGAPORE – Singapore needs to prepare for the next phase of growth in the digital economy to emerge stronger from the Covid-19 pandemic, said Minister of Communications and Information S. Iswaran on Tuesday (Nov 3).
Mr Iswaran highlighted a three-pronged strategy to do so during his opening address at the GSMA Thrive Asia Pacific, a three-day mobile network industry virtual event.
The strategy includes laying strong foundations for the digital economy by investing in digital infrastructure, building international governance frameworks for freer flow of information and guarding against the opening of a digital divide by strengthening the digital capabilities of our enterprises and people.
