Expanding on the analysis done in the 5th GSMA APAC Digital Societies report, GSMA released a report on 22 Feb 2021 entitled “Recognizing the potential of Industry 4.0” looking at the Industry 4.0 efforts in the 11 target countries in Asia Pacific (Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam).

In this webinar, the GSMA will summarize the report and host a discussion with the stakeholders on Industry 4.0. As countries look to connectivity to drive economic growth and resiliency, participants will have the opportunity to consider on-the-ground data, bolstered by panelist insight, and consider how Industry 4.0 efforts may drive their interests forward.
