The European Chamber of Commerce, Singapore is delighted to share that Mr. Gan Kim Yong, Minister for Trade and Industry, will be the Guest of Honour at the EuroCham Digital Economy Whitebook Launch Breakfast, joined by Her Excellency Iwona Piórko (Ambassador of the European Union to Singapore), and Mr. Federico Donato (Past President of the European Chamber of Commerce).
The Minister will be present at the event to commemorate the Digital Economy Whitebook 2023, an initiative by EuroCham in response to the EU-Singapore Digital Partnership (EUSDP) signed in February 2023, underscoring digital collaboration between the European Union and Singapore. This partnership focuses on digital transformation, a key aspect of shifting towards a digital economy fueled by the internet, electronics, and data.
Singapore is a digitalization pioneer in ASEAN, having engaged in digital initiatives with various regions, while the European Union is embarking on its own "Digital Decade." EuroCham sees significant opportunities for businesses and acts as a bridge between businesses, governments, and communities. Throughout 2023, we have been diligently arranging a sequence of discussions and gatherings as part of our Digital Economy Programme.
About the Digital Economy Whitebook
This Whitebook showcases EuroCham's dedication to supporting digital transformation. It compares Singapore's existing Digital Partnership Agreements to understand their role in advancing digitalization. The Whitebook also presents our 2023 Digital Economy Survey Report, gathering insights from 50+ respondents across sectors.
Based on survey results and research, the Whitebook offers recommendations for businesses and governments to drive digital economic transformation. Additionally, it features Company Profile Articles showcasing member companies' digitalization practices, especially in the Singapore context.
Symbolizing an ongoing EU-Singapore dialogue, this Whitebook will guide digitalization efforts for years to come.
