Understanding & Accelerating the Fourth Industrial Revolution
According to the World Economic Forum, the value of digital transformations in the Fourth Industrial Revolution is estimated at US$100 trillion in the next decade alone, across all sectors, industries and geographies. How can Malaysia ensure that we profit from the transformations taking place?
This panel takes a big-picture look at the Fourth Industrial Revolution, examining it from mainly a business and economics angle, but without neglecting its social and political impact on Malaysia, including the effectiveness of government policies related to business and technology. The panel will also discuss how business leaders can take advantage of the changes brought upon by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
