Round up of the Singapore Digital Economy Agreement Mission 19th-22nd September 2022

From the 19th – 22nd September, Amit Rao, Vice President – Sales & Business Development Asia, was asked to be part of the UK’s DEA Mission delegation to Singapore, on behalf of  Device Authority.

The delegation comprised of high growth legal, cyber and safety tech companies. The diversity of the mission provided an amazing platform for the delegation to explore growth opportunities in Asia-Pacific, leveraging the landmark United Kingdom-Singapore Digital Economy Agreement (DEA), which came into force on Jun 14 this year. The events spanning across 3 days saw participation from over 90 corporations, government agencies and regulators, investors, tech, law & cybersecurity firms.

The event was hosted at Eden Hall, the official residence of the British High Commissioner to the Republic of Singapore, Kara Owen, and His Majesty’s Trade Commissioner, Natalie Black CBE.

Attendees were able to participate in a series of insightful discussions around IoT Cybersecurity adoption in the region with various stakeholders including the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), IMDA, GovTech Singapore, ICE71 and INTERPOL. The delegation was also hosted by teams from the PwC Experience Centre, DSTA (Defence Science & Technology Agency), Asia Market Entry.

We at Device Authority are grateful to have been selected to participate in this exclusive event, and are excited about the potential to collaborate with leading organisations and government agencies in the region in the coming months.

Special thanks go to the UK DIT team and British High Commission to Singapore – Tim Kay, Jessica Reilly, Richard Lewis, Joushua Markert, Thomas Tilley, Elsie Yim, Andre Pandean, for the invite and putting together this mission.
