A conference, which is expected to offer insights into international business growth opportunities and potential collaborative opportunities between Asean members, was launched in Thailand today, August 3.

The five-day “Executive Programme on New Economy 2019″ conference will focus on hearing from experienced practitioners and industry experts to build actionable capabilities and new networks to drive business growth and international branding in the new economy.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Prinn Panitchpakdi, a member of the board of directors at New Economy Academy, said the conference was aimed at strengthening cooperation among Asean countries, including Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand.

The conference is also expected to allow participants to share experiences on economic growth in the digital era, he said.

According to the organising board, with a high digital literacy, a young population, and an emerging middle class, Asean is set to reap the full benefits of cross-border trade in the digital economy. Speakers also underscored the need for enterprises to seek out appropriate ecosystems, including payment, financial management and logistics, to best match the needs of the market.

The board also suggested that governments shift their roles from being regulators to facilitators, who will foster conducive cross-border digital trade ecosystems.

With this in mind, participants will receive opportunities to explore further on these topics and engage with Asean thought leaders in multiple dimensions, including international expansion, cross-border e-commerce and digital trade ecosystems.
