This annual flagship activity will gather CIOs or and participating ten countries representatives at a roundtable. It will be a significant energy of togetherness to drive discussion towards the next action as well to identify the next host country on voluntarily basis. The ground theme “Your Country; Our ASEAN” has kept strong reminder on the close ties each country takes pride and honour to be a part of this effort believing ICT holds a key stake to serve the country growing needs in the digital economy.
This year ASEAN CIO Roundtable will be driven by ACIOA and her councillors where insights and approaches towards SmartASEAN 2020 vision will be discussed. A two-hour session will explore boundaries on putting the Information Communication Technology behind every human experience and combine inputs from other industry thought leaders. Some wisdom from roundtable participants:
I. Learning success and failure from each country
II. Every nation has a part to contribute to support the emerging countries
III. The path towards a SmartASEAN take a lot of discomfort and challenges. This is a seeding session to appreciate and understand what need to get done and what it takes to combine efforts for a cohesive ASEAN.
