Panel: Spotlight on Singapore’s innovation

In times of unprecedented change, new technologies are needed to not only help governments provide the necessary public infrastructure and services citizens need, but also to maintain their standing on the global landscape. Governments and agencies are looking for the right partnerships to help survive and thrive in the new hyper-connected age, and build national level, both post-pandemic and long-term. These solutions must be accessible even to non-digital natives, and clear engagement and communication both internally, and externally is key for governments to enable nations to adopt new technologies for new times.
