ASEAN Digital Innovation Forum
Name: ASEAN Digital Innovation Forum
Date: August 12, 2019
The ASEAN Digital Innovation Forum is one of the four initiatives under the ASEAN Framework on Digital Data Governance (found here), intended to support the third strategic priority of the Framework: Digitalization and Emerging Technologies. According to the Framework, the Forum "should function as an avenue for effective dissemination of information on emerging digital trends and the relevant regulatory issues. Such forums can also include hands-on workshops for participants to experiment with the latest technological solutions, and to motivate them to adopt new technologies. Ideally, these forums would encourage collaboration between technology firms and other private and public sector organisations, promote data-driven innovation and improve awareness on key issues such as cybersecurity in ASEAN."
