Welcome to UK-Asia Pacific Digital Trade Week!
4-8 October 2021 – Throughout the week we will explore emerging tech opportunities across the APAC markets, how to successfully grow tech business in the region and how both regions can work together in areas of digital trade policy. #techUKAPAC.
This week aims to explore how to scale up tech business and build commercial networks in the APAC region; the opportunities of developing world-leading standards for digital trade with countries across Asia Pacific; collaboration opportunities in tech and innovation between the UK and Asia Pacific; and attracting Foreign Direct Investment into the UK.
The APAC region plays an important role in establishing the UK’s global leadership in digital trade. The region is home to Singapore, Australia and New Zealand - countries breaking ground in digital trade with the Digital Economy Agreement and Digital Economy Partnership Agreement – and to some of the fastest growing digital markets and tech ecosystems in the world.
The importance of Asia Pacific economies has been made central to UK’s international trade strategy. With 65% of the world's middle class set to be in the Asia Pacific by 2030 and ASEAN’s potential to enter the top five digital economies in the world by 2025, it is important for UK tech business to start building commercial networks in these fast-growing markets.
To support UK tech business in taking full advantage of these opportunities, techUK in partnership with the Digital Trade Network officially launched techUK’s new UK – APAC Tech Forum.
