2 September 2020: What’s next for the digital economy?


The global adjustment to the coronavirus pandemic has seen a faster shift to a digital economy as technology has been harnessed to deal with abrupt changes in every aspect of life.

From having to suddenly create an online marketplace, to consumers demanding more services through digital platforms, and information from data being used widely in critical public policy decisions.  This webinar will look at some of these changes and ask what skills are required to adapt and make the most of the opportunity. We will look at a project to upskill micro business and the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Australia and Indonesia.
