JETRO and ESG jointly present
Singapore - Japan COVID-19 Tech Live: "Digital Transformation Platform" Breakout Sessions

We warmly invite you to the breakout sessions of Digital Transformation Platform (DXPF). A total of three (3) breakout sessions will be held in June and July to discuss on how companies can come together to enact digital transformation that can help to overcome the business challenges resulted from the Covid-19 situation.

The theme and date for each session are as follows:

1. Local Businesses

2. Global Businesses

3. Living and Work Environment

1st Breakout Session – Local Businesses

The 1st breakout session will focus on Local Businesses. Local Businesses are defined as businesses that rely on a local community or locally present customers to be sustained. Examples are retailers, restaurants, local transport providers, etc. The impact of Covid-19 has been large on these types of businesses, from being forced to shut down operations temporarily to being unable to reach customers through traditional means.


2nd Breakout Session – Global Businesses

The 2nd breakout session will focus on Global Businesses. Global Businesses are defined as businesses that are reliant on other global stakeholders, such as businesses operating in the global supply chain. Examples are manufacturing, international logistics, aviation, etc. The impact of Covid-19 has been significant on these types of businesses, from disruption in global supply chain to not being able to operate at maximum capacity due to restriction in labour, etc.


3rd Breakout Session – Living and Work Environment

The 3rd breakout session will focus on Covid-19 impact on societal norms, as people have to limit physical interaction and begin to work and interact remotely. Almost all industries are affected, and businesses will need to adapt to the changes in living and work environment post Covid-19.
