Global Tech Webinar: Philippines – Riding the Digital Revolution

About event:

In August, we focus on the Philippines market. By 2025, the Country’s internet economy is expected to grow by 30 percent annually to reach US$ 28 billion.  Philippines has many young, digital savvy users. With a population of 110 million at an average age of 23, the average Filipino spends more than 10 hours a day online, more than any other country.  

The Philippine government is undertaking major economic reforms to boost its global competitiveness, including:

  • reduce restrictions on foreign investment
  • upgrade communications infrastructure for greater connectivity.   
  • provide significant digitalisation opportunities through the country’s U$30 billion annual remittance from Filipinos working overseas and the business process outsource industry
  • rapidly adopt digital technologies through the National ID roll-out, National Broadband and Cybersecurity plans and Cloud First Policy. 

In this webinar, you’ll:

  • Hear about digitalisation opportunities in finance, logistics and manufacturing 
  • Understand the pain points in the transformation journey and opportunities to unlock the country’s digital potential
  • Know why there has been unprecedented growth in digital payments and e-commerce
