FREE SPECIAL REPORT

By now, all of us would have experienced what it’s like to live in the online world.

The last 11 months have seen unprecedented growth in internet traffic as more people turn to Zoom to communicate.

This digital shift has been made even more apparent with recent announcements on 5G trials conducted by our local telecommunication companies.

This week alone, there have been three instances where the digital world was thrust into the spotlight.

First off, there was the award of four digital banking licences by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

The winners are supposed to commence operations by early 2022.

Next, DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05) announced that it is setting up a digital exchange to facilitate the trading and custody of digital assets.

And finally, just yesterday, in outlining Singapore’s research plans from now till 2025, three areas – artificial intelligence, 5G and cybersecurity, were cited as key pillars of the post-COVID digital economy.

These events and announcements show that the future lies in the digital economy, and businesses that can latch on these tailwinds stand to benefit greatly.
