ABIS is organised on a yearly basis by the private sector of the ASEAN chair’s country. Nearly 1,000 delegates are attending the two-day summit, including government leaders of ASEAN member states, ASEAN dialogue partners, representatives of private firms, civil society organisations and research institutes. Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha delivered an opening speech at the event. Major topics discussed at the summit include digital infrastructure, digital connectivity, digital human resource development, and micro, small- and medium-sized digital enterprises (MSMEs) in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIR). ABIS-2019 is an ideal platform for the private sector and stakeholders in ASEAN and the region to define, discuss and seek solutions to urgent problems affecting economic activities, investment attraction and business potential in the region.
