E-Commerce Connectivity in ASEAN

The next Asian miracle of growth could be born with the region's digital transformation. Digital connectivity is the cornerstone that will make the changes feasible and smoothen the transformation. It consists of not only physical connectivity that facilitates the movement of raw materials, intermediate goods, and goods, but also cyber connectivity to support free flows of data, information, and services.

This book provides policy insights for ASEAN to realise the potential of fast growth by improving regional digital connectivity with an emphasis on (i) data connectivity, (ii) logistics to facilitate the free flow of goods and services, (iii) connectivity to facilitate cash flows, and (iv) seamless links between the physical and cyber-space.
