A Digital Societies Companion Report – Recognising the potential of Industry 4.0 in Asia Pacifc
This is a supplementary report to the 5th Digital Societies Report published in November 2020. It provides a deep dive into the survey data collected from the Digital Societies report.
In May 2020 GSMA sent questionnaires to government agencies, mobile operators and other digital ecosystem players in Asia Pacific to understand the roles of a ‘Whole of Government approach (WGA)’ and ‘Implementation of Industry 4.0′ in advancing digital societies in the region.
Respondents included 14 government agencies and 17 local and global industry players. The survey explored four key areas:
- What are the key digital foundations that need to be in place to deliver Industry 4.0 visions in the focus countries?
- What are the current approaches by policymakers to deliver Industry 4.0?
- What and where are the pinch points in the delivery of Industry 4.0?
- What are the new approaches to address these pinch points?
