Digital technologies have been crucial for the continuity of governments and industries and for social resilience during the pandemic; they will also be key to post-pandemic economic recovery. Both India and Sri Lanka have leveraged their digital tools, including telemedicine, and mobile apps (such as Aarogya Setu/Suwapetha) to tide their populations through these challenges. The “pandemic push” also accelerated the adoption of services in the realms of e-commerce, digital payments and online education. 

This event is being held in in collaboration with the Colombo Initiative (CI) and the Sappani Foundation (SF).
