Panel: Digital Public Goods 2.0: The Blueprint for Building a Digital Economy 


10:30 am – 12:00 pm SGT

Digital public goods and infrastructure are a cornerstone in advancing inclusive and equitable growth around the world. From providing cost effective, immediate payment systems to sharing open access software that businesses can use to expand, digital public goods are a key component in the digitalization and expansion of the tools and services people use to connect, learn, build, and transact. As the usage and creation of these tools expands, NGOs, international organizations, the private sector, and governments must navigate the implementation of digital public goods to foster inclusive economic growth within lower- and middle-income economies. What can we learn from digital public good implementations in India and Singapore? What have been some of the challenges in these and other markets that are considering building digital public goods? And given that technology and the applications of technology have evolved a great deal in recent years, what would the next generation of digital public good look like and what are the key considerations from a technology, regulatory, sustainability, inclusivity and business value perspective?
