The IoT Market in ASEAN
ASEAN is a key global economy but not yet a key digital economy – ASEAN’s digital economy, with 7% contribution to GDP, lags behind China, Europe and the USA. ASEAN can work together to maximise the benefits of digital transformation through digital integration, encouraging local enterprises to innovate and create an ecosystem regionally. Here are some of the key initiatives by governments across countries revealed at our editions in 2019:
The Malaysian government has acknowledged the critical role of IoT as one of the strategic pillars to drive digital initiatives in the country including the Malaysian Industry4FWD which was shared by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry.
In the Philippines, government has been actively promoting digitization through various initiatives including Inclusive Innovative Industrial Strategy (i3s). However, challenges such as stable and reliable connectivity infrastructure, established policies and roadmap and industry collaboration still persist.
Thailand’s Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa) shared their roadmap of Thailand 4.0 – an effort to transform the economy into a value-based and innovation-driven economy with 10 S-Curve targeted industries including advanced agriculture, robotics and automation, tourism and next generation automotive. The masterplan of Digital Park Thailand which include IoT institute development is being finalised as well.
The government of Indonesia has finalised the IoT roadmap which includes regulations for the 3 main components of IoT: device, connectivity and people/process (including software and applications). Both the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and the Ministry of Industry have shared further details on the Making Indonesia 4.0 initiative which includes IoT as a key component.
Vietnam’s government has recently signed Politburo Resolution 52 which regulates guidelines and policies to accelerate the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This reinforces the government’s commitment to drive digitalisation ecosystem in the country with the aim of 30% GDP contribution from digital economy by 2030.
