The APWINC initiated the project in 2022 and held the first Steering Committee meeting in March(https://www.aseanrokfund.com/news/apwinc-launches-asean-rok-cooperation-project-enhancing-digital-economy-participation-for-asean-women-msmes). The R&D team was launched in May with 12 experts in the fields of digital economy and e-Business, consisting of 10 local consultants selected from each ASEAN country and 2 Korean consultants.

 

A total of 22 participants attended the Kick-Off Workshop including consultants from 11 countries – Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Republic of Korea - as well as representatives from the ASEAN Secretariat and the ASEAN-Korea Programme Management Team (AKPMT) of AKCF.

 

The R&D team will develop training courses to revitalize the e-business in ASEAN by identifying the current status and needs of the digital economy and e-business fields of ASEAN countries. In addition, the team will promote joint research to find solutions that can improve the participation of ASEAN women in the digital economy. Based on the preliminary research result, the e-Business Training Toolkit will be developed by the end of this year.
