Week 3 of DigitalxADB

25 October 2021 to 29 October 2021

 

Agile and innovative start-ups have accelerated the digitalization of society, economy, and institutions, contributing to sustainable development outcomes across Asia and the Pacific. Digital technologies enable governments to fundamentally transform the way they operate and deliver services to people by improving efficiency, governance, and transparency.

This Week's racks provide an opportunity to discuss new ideas and discover synergies and collaboration opportunities for ADB and its partners in creating supportive ecosystems for start-ups in the region and explore best practices of an integrated, citizen-centric, and whole-of-government approach to the building blocks of digital government.
