Conference Objectives!

‘Digital Economy’ Contributes to Economic Success!

Information and communication technologies have greatly transformed the way we run our economies and our social well-being. In this rapidly changing competitive global landscape, the role of digital media and technology cannot be under-estimated. It is, indeed, a great challenge to every government and policy-makers to ensure a very conducive business climate in order to harness the growth prospects and economic success. For instance, attracting highly talented work-force and investments, is quite imminent, here.

In the same way, encouraging innovation, supporting new ideas, extending financial support to venture capital investments and identifying new markets for your products should form part of the newly emerging digital economy.

Ensuring a Conducive Business Climate!

Research indicates that gradual reduction on our dependence on fossil fuel is possible only if we resort to smart transportation, smart offices and digital logistics in all our systems. Of course, both private and public sector should work very closely in order to move faster, ensure an orderly growth of the economy and in the process, the standard of living of the people, as well.

Keeping the above features and challenging tasks in mind, the upcoming conference in the beautiful city of Bangkok, aims at achieving the following objectives. More specifically, the conference aims to:

Conference Objectives:

a) Identify the major drivers of growth in the digital economy;

b) Encouraging budding researchers and veterans in the field of digital commerce and technology in order to share their rich experience and knowledge based on their research outcomes;

c) Provide a great platform for researchers, economists, marketing experts and practitioners to network and share their research and practical experiences to develop models and systems for addressing the challenges being faced by the economic systems; and

d) Suggest undertaking inter-disciplinary research not only in digital economy based challenging topics but in other related fields, as well.
