ASEAN Digital Innovation Programme

About FutureReadyASEAN

With a young and dynamic population, rapid economic integration and urbanisation, the demand for a skilled and digital-ready workforce is high in the ASEAN region.

Launched in March 2019, this program aims to train 520 teachers and 46,000 underserved youth aged 15 to 35 on digital skills by 2020. Trainings will leverage the platform and be conducted by Empire Code as master trainer in eight ASEAN countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam).
