Harnessing the Development Potential of Technological Breakthroughs

As we enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution featured by frontier technological breakthroughs such as AI, robotics, 3D printing, the Internet of Things, biotechnology, nanotechnology and renewable energy, it will be critical that these technologies work for society and the environment as well as the economy if we are to achieve the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

While some countries in the region have been at the forefront of innovative policymaking for frontier technologies, much more work is required to ensure that the next generation technology policies keep pace with rapid development of technologies.
