Digital transformation is upending traditional ways of doing business and could provide new business models and opportunities for companies beyond just the Manufacturing sector but also in the Trade and Connectivity sector. While businesses need to adapt to the pace of the technological changes or risk being left behind – there is also fear, uncertainty and doubt related to Industry 4.0 implementations. Quickening the pace of adoption would require government, industry, and academia to work together.

Dinner Talk Highlights:

• Understand what are the enabling technologies you can potentially tap on for your organisation
• New business opportunities & business models in the Trade & Connectivity sector
• Required roles and responsibilities that comes with this digital transformation
• Learn how you can empower your workforce to transform in tune to Industry 4.0 and beyond
