“Now more than ever, with technology holding so much potential to change our lives for the better, we need to come together to unlock it,” Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), said at the launch of the Tech for Good Institute on 4 October 2021.
Professor Schwab spoke of the key issues that technology poses for governments, companies and societies, sharing how collaboration can help tackle these concerns.
“Southeast Asian nations have a chance to avoid negative scenarios played elsewhere and build a healthy and prosperous digital economy, building also on the specific national strengths and needs. It is hard to overestimate the importance of starting the operation of the Tech for Good Institute today,” he added.
