Federation of Information Technology Industry Sri Lanka (FITIS), the apex body for the ICT industry in Sri Lanka, joined forces with Asian-Oceanian Computing Industry Organisation (ASOCIO) to host the first-ever Asia-Pacific virtual collaboration forum to discuss ICT opportunities deriving from post-Covid-19 response reciprocities available in the Asia-Pacific region. The virtual forum will feature ASOCIO Chairman David Wong as the Keynote Speaker together with FITIS Chairman Abbas Kamrudeen, ASOCIO Vice Chair Dr. Manchanayake, and ICT industry leaders from 13 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. 

The virtual conclave will feature ICT experts from Bangladesh, Bhutan, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam

The virtual forum will be held tomorrow at 4 p.m. It is expected to be attend by professionals across the Asia-Pacific region, including but not limited to ICT Industry and business leaders, CIO’s regulators, and other senior executives. 

While several Asia-Pacific countries are successfully using ICTs to address economic, social and environmental challenges, many others lack adequate access to ICTs during this pandemic. This virtual forum aims to bring together ICT experts from across the region to identify the opportunities in the next normal to contribute to the digital transformation journey in the region. It also gives the opportunity to share solutions, innovations and best practices adopted within each economy.

In contrast, this forum will help to sustain the capacity of ICT successes as in recent years and at the same time, work towards helping to extend ICT opportunities and benefits across the Asia-Pacific region through addressing emerging challenges as a response to the worldly pandemic.
