World Economic Forum on ASEAN 2017 "Youth, Technology and Growth: Securing ASEAN’s Digital and Demographic Dividends"
In the ASEAN region, more than half of the population of 630 million is under the age of 30. This promises a powerful demographic dividend that will drive already high rates of economic growth for decades to come. As the working-age population grows in number, it will boost the region’s spending, but also increase its savings and hence its capacity to invest. Just as important, the transformative impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution has the potential to deliver a potent and muscular digital dividend. As digital technology takes hold, it is expected to stimulate powerful new industries and development models. In the Forum’s capacity as the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation, this meeting will be an ideal platform for senior decision-makers from a range of sectors to facilitate greater collaboration between industry, government and civil society, and to work on shaping the brightest future for the region’s young.
