09:40 - 10:50 A Resilient Future in Asia Through Tech 
Pandemics are an ever-present threat that can devastate industries across any region in an instant. When these unwanted times arise, the simplest of technology can sometimes provide backup systems without applying sophisticated tools. Thousands of innovators around the region are constantly exploring new ways to use technology to benefit others each day. Armed with more advanced tech options than ever to choose from, how should industry leaders’ respond and address critical needs through tech in building a more resilient future?

This session will discuss how regional leaders tackle and pivot their organisations accordingly to cope with pandemics - how the capabilities of the next-generation mobile communication can provide a solution in solving these complex problems - how advanced data analytics can be applied to map out the answers to tackle a pandemic.

11:35 - 11:55 The Evolution of Streaming Technology Stack in China and Southeast Asia | Over the past decade, China has become the world's largest live streaming market and Southeast Asia became the fastest-growing internet economy too. Boosted by the COVID-19 lockdown, the number of live streaming users in China has expanded to 500 million, and that of mobile streaming users in Southeast Asia has grown by 60%. An increasing number of streaming services and content providers, such as Netflix, Disney+, and TikTok, have tapped into these markets. However, it is not easy to compete with local players and truly capitalise on the market opportunity without a deep understanding of the unique industry ecosystem in the region. In this presentation, Angel Chin, Senior Director of Products & Solutions Engineering of BaishanCloud, will discuss the streaming industry trends in China & Southeast Asia, the underlying technology, and what we are expecting to see in the future. You will leave the session with a good knowledge of the streaming landscape in China & Southeast Asia, and the key drivers of streaming tech evolution, which will inform your entry, growth, and/or investment strategy in the region.
