The Effects of Covid-19 on Digitalization in Southeast Asia: A Crisis Within a Crisis - AsiaGlobal Papers No. 4

While Covid-19 has accelerated the implementation of digitalization with regard to artificial intelligence in Southeast Asia, it has also emphasized the need for reform and structural change in many sectors, notably education, business, healthcare, communications and banking and most importantly has compressed the time frame for those reforms. This paper examines the transition to digitalization in both the public and private sectors in Southeast Asia before and during the Covid-19 acceleration period. It examines the crisis and its unique problems and also the opportunities to install change.

Keywords: Digitalization, Southeast Asia, ASEAN, Covid-19, Technology, Healthcare
