This session will focus on technological change and digital revolution in Asia. It will explore the key technological trends and developments (unique to Asia and/or common globally), their implications on Asia’s societies and communities. It will ask the question: how will technology change the way we lead and are led? What core technological competencies will our leaders need to govern in the 21st century? Will Asia have its own unique place in the global digital disruption?
